Bhagat Publishes 'Work Stress and Coping in the Era of Globalization'

Dr. Rabi Bhagat

Dr. Rabi S. Bhagat, a Senior Professor in the Department of Management, has published his latest of six books, "Work Stress and Coping in the Era of Globalization." The book, which will be released in November by the publishing group Taylor & Francis, was co-authored by Terry Nelson, a Ph.D. student in Management at Fogelman College, and Dr. James Segovis of Bryant University in Providence, R.I.

"Work Stress and Coping in the Era of Globalization" looks at how individuals experience and deal with work stress in developed and developing countries throughout the world. In it, Bhagat and his co-authors examine the nature of new kinds of stresses, pressures and hassles that have emerged as countries of the world have become highly interconnected due to globalization.

The book is based on Bhagat's comprehensive studies on work life, including the changing rhythms of professional life as a consequence of globalization in both advanced and emergent economies. Its findings have practical implications for companies in the Memphis area that have faced rising levels of insecurity due to layoffs. "These layoffs can take place and indeed do take place due to global market-related pressures for outsourcing and offshoring," Bhagat said.

Bhagat, who came to Fogelman in 1990, has published other titles including "Handbook of Culture, Organizations, and Work," and "Management Across Cultures." His research is focused in several areas: cross-cultural variations in all aspects of organizational behavior, theory and international management; development of a global mindset; human stress and cognition in the era of globalization; knowledge management and technology transfer; and significance of leadership in developing countries.
