More Information
This comprehensive Handbook explores both traditional and contemporary interpretations of qualitative research in the workplace, examining a variety of foundational and innovative qualitative methodological approaches.

Expert international contributors discuss how organisations have undergone substantial changes, prompting novel research agendas, which, in turn, required inventive applications of qualitative methodologies in a range of workplace contexts. The Handbook comprises three parts, which consider the foundational knowledge of qualitative methodologies; innovative additions to these methodologies; and their application in a range of workplace contexts and disciplines, including management, health and education policy. Chapters focus on context and the role of reflexivity as central issues for decision making about appropriate methodologies, highlighting how qualitative research has responded to contemporary developments in workplaces, such as the global dispersal of organisations, flexible work arrangements and changes to stakeholder relationships.

Analysing the challenges and opportunities for conducting qualitative research in modern organisations, this Handbook will be critical reading for academics and students of organisation studies and qualitative research methods, particularly those with a focus on business and management.
Critical Acclaim
‘This Handbook provides workplace researchers essential resources from a wide array of qualitative methodologies and methods, ranging from grounded theory to discourse analysis to narrative inquiry. Co-editors Crossman and Bordia have assembled a rich collection of chapters detailing foundation approaches for studying the individual employee’s voice up to the larger institution’s collective stories. This reference by international contributors is an ideal companion for qualitative and mixed methods researchers in business, organization, management, and the psychology and sociology of work.’
– Johnny Saldaña, Professor Emeritus, Arizona State University, US

‘Organizations are facing an era of unprecedented turbulence and complexity. The Handbook of Qualitative Research Methodologies in Workplace Contexts provides a very welcome potpourri of both innovative and tried-and-true qualitative methods for surfacing emergent issues and their vexing dynamics. The diversity of authors enables the Handbook to highlight the tensions among various methods, helping the would-be qualitative researcher think through what might work best for their own projects.’
– Blake Ashforth, Arizona State University, US
