Workplaces and work itself are increasingly interdependent, and relationships have become the means by which work occurs. As such, positive work relationships can enrich employee's lives, while conversely, the stress caused by corrosive work relationships adds to health care costs faced by organizations and can affect the personal lives of employees. Exploring Positive Relationships at Work is useful for both practical and theoretical reasons, offering a comprehensive and multidisciplinary understanding of how relationships enable people at work. It is designed to put the field of positive relationships in the workplace on the research map by uncovering the mechanism and dynamics of these relationships. The editors approach the topic from multiple levels, each level providing critical, valuable insights into the dynamic and generative process underlying positive relationships in organizations. These levels are arranged in five parts: *an introduction to positive relationships at work; *Individuals and Dyads; *Groups and Communities; *Organizations a Organizing; and *a conclusion pointing to the future direction of research on positive work relationships. This volume will appeal to academics and practitioners, as well as scholars and graduate students in organizational psychology, management, human resources, and inter-personal communications.This volume will appeal to academics and practitioners, as well as scholars and graduate students in organizational psychology, management, human resources, and inter-personal communications.
