How is your relationship with your organization? A positive employee-organization relationship (EOR) is the key to the viability and long-term success of employees and workplaces. This course examines the complex and reciprocal relationship between employees and employers/managers. Students in this class will learn and apply key psychological theories and models (i.e., social exchange theory, psychological contract, and procedural justice.) The discussions will include assessing the implications of EOR to psychological ownership, motivation, ethical behaviors, creativity, job satisfaction, trust, and performance of employees and how to improve the organizational outcomes.
This class is in an online format where class meetings are conducted via Zoom and learning activities placed on Canvas. Zoom sessions will be held on Thursdays only. The rest of the class will be offered asynchronous, online. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit. Students can receive credits in psychology, leadership studies, or business management for completing this course.
