For academics, executive consultants, career counselors, human resource professionals, and organizational leaders, Dik (psychology, Colorado State U.) et al. present 10 essays by counseling and vocational psychology, industrial and organizational psychology, organizational behavior, and management scholars mostly from the US, who consider what makes work meaningful, what individuals and organizations can do to make it more meaningful, and what the effects are on employee health, happiness, sense of purpose, and productivity. They address career choice and development, person-environment fit, the protean career orientation, day-to-day meaning through job crafting and engagement, how employees doing undesirable work construct meaning and purpose, social-cognitive variables involved in work satisfaction, organizational practices that influence meaning, transformational leadership, and using executive and organizational coaches to promote meaning. Each chapter includes five to 10 specific recommendations for fostering meaning and the evidence behind them. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
