Individual Differences and Productivity

Abstract

One of the arguments often brought against theories in organisational psychology is that they take little account of individual differences. Not everyone, for example, wants fulfilment from his job, and what is wanted by one group of individuals is not necessarily wanted by another. In this chapter, some of the major differences between individuals in relation to productivity will be examined, including age, sex, personality, abilities and racial and cultural differences.
