Product Description

Differences in personality and behaviour are part of the dynamic workplace. They can be understood better, and managed if necessary, if the HR practitioner or HR Manager has some knowledge of psychology. Basic Psychology for Human Resource Practitioners third edition discussed individual differences, abilities, attitudes, perceptions, ways of learning and personalities, and covers the most important aspects of measuring personality traits. It also explains aspects of group behaviour, be they social, political, cultural or recreational.
