Healthy and productive work : an international perspective by Lawrence R Murphy( )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 1,853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "enterprise culture" of the 1980s helped transform economies of Western Europe, but left behind a legacy of stress, both for managers and shop floor workers. The cost to business is seen in absenteeism, reduced productivity, compensation claims, health insurance and direct medical costs, which in the US cost approximately 150 billion a year. Stress related absences are about ten times more costly in the UK than all industrial relations disputes put together, and sickness absence, premature death and retirement due to alcoholism costs a staggering £2 billion a year. The future is likely to get worse. As the pace of change increases and competition intensifies, organizations will restructure and the pressure on individual workers will increase. They can expect to feel less in control and more insecure in their work. This major work includes a collection of good practice examples and has been drawn together in a structured way to allow clear comparisons of a number of companies in the USA and Europe, ranging from the US Air Force, to an international pharmaceutical company (Zeneca), and a high-powered international retailer

Advances in mergers and acquisitions by Sydney Finkelstein( )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 1,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the third book in the series Advances in Mergers and Acquisitions, comprised of leading international scholars from a range of disciplines, who explore the economic, financial, strategic or organizational behaviour aspects of M & A's. Marie Kavanagh and Neal Ashkanasy explore how management approaches to mergers and acquisitions contribute to cultural change and acculturation outcomes. The issue of management is pursued further by Duncan Angwin in his chapter on the managing executive in post-acquisition management. Richard Schoenberg highlights the significance of management style compatibility and cross border acquisition outcomes. Randall Schuler, Ibraiz Tarique and Susan Jackson explore cross border alliances as well but from the point of view of managing human resources. The ideal acquisition integration approach is examined by Kimberly Ellis and Bruce Lamont in the context of a merger of equals which leads nicely to the corporate governance issues and M & A's explored by Anant Sundaram. The remaining chapters assess the returns of M & A's to the organization, with Laurence Capron and Jung-Chin Shen positing the acquirer returns when buying public v private firms, Todd Saxton's reputations as a mobile and transferable asset and Garry Davies and Rosa Chun's reputational perspective on mergers. These leading international academics contribute enormously to our understanding of the rapidly growing merger and acquisition field

Advances in mergers and acquisitions by Sydney Finkelstein( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What makes the Advances in Mergers and Acquisitions series stand out is its focus on all three characteristics that make up this research field studies from scholars in different countries, with different research questions, relying on different theoretical perspectives. Such a broad, and inclusive, approach to mergers and acquisitions is not easily replicated in academic journals, with much narrower mandates and metrics. The collections published each year provide cutting edge ideas by leading scholars on a global scale. Doing so not only broadens the questions being studied, but also helps researchers consider the inter-relationships among different perspectives. In the final analysis, the best way to build understanding around a topic as diffuse as mergers and acquisitions is to be both integrative, and expansive, in choice of research questions and theoretical underpinnings. Advances in Mergers and Acquisitions offers this unique perspective, not easily found elsewhere, that will help scholars think about mergers and acquisitions in new ways, building our knowledge base on this critical topic
