Organizational Misbehaviour in the Workplace Narratives of Dignity By Professor Jan Ch Karlsson
Employees need dignity and autonomy in their workplace. If they are denied this there will be a strong tendency to resist working conditions and misbehave. The theme of this book is how employees try to establish and maintain dignity and itincludes a wealth of gripping, funny and tragic stories about workers’ and managers’ creative ways of doing that – narratives that make us reflect upon how employees are treated at work and the consequences thereof. Jan Ch. Karlsson presents a new model for analyzing these processes in working life. The model integrates themes that have usually been regarded as separate entities, such as organizational misbehaviour, resistance, abusive supervision, discipline in informal self-organised groups at workplaces, and doing private business during working hours. Through this model a fascinating novel perspective is suggested on what is currently happening in the modern workplace.
Organizational Misbehaviour in the Workplace Narratives of Dignity was well written and I continued to read even though I really didn’t want to read it.
hese are stories I would recommend for anyone who loves to read. They are absorbing, joyful.
