Research Companion to Emotion in Organizations

Edited by Neal M. Ashkanasy and Cary L. Cooper

This Companion brings together many leading scholars to address a wide range of topics in 38 chapters, across five levels of organizational analysis – including within-person, between-person (individual differences), relationships, groups, and the organization as a whole. Chapters tackle structure and measurement of emotion, antecedents and consequences of positive and negative emotions, including effects on work satisfaction and performance. The expression, recognition, and regulation of emotion and the propagation of mood and emotion in groups are also dealt with. The Companion explores contemporary issues including leadership, organizational climate and culture, as well as organizational change.

Knowledge of how these major constructs interrelate has both theoretical and practical implications, especially given their role in individual reactions and organizational procedures. To date, however, there has been no systematic summary of research co-examining affect and justice. Our goals for this chapter are to close this gap by summarizing the existing literature and research findings on the relationship between justice and affect, and to identify future directions needed for understanding this relationship.
