about this item
This insightful book draws on a range of contemporary and classic studies to explore the connection between the personal experience of work and the wider social structures in which it takes place.
Identity at Work examines key social identities relevant to the workplace, such as those based on gender, ethnicity and race, sexual orientation, disability, age, occupation, class and organizational membership. It draws on contemporary research from a wide variety of countries and academic approaches, providing a readable and engaging introduction to the issues, showing the relevance of understanding how people experience work, understand and present themselves at work, and relate to others. Providing a clear and balanced coverage of the topic, this book shows students how to combine the study of self-identity and collective identities in organizational research, emphasising intersectionality and solidarity.
Filling the gap for an accessible investigation of work and identity, this text will be of interest to students looking at organizational behaviour, diversity management and the sociology of work.
