This book brings together research conducted over the past few years, the main idea of which is to present personal differences in work behavior. The aim is to reveal in general the aspects that underlie individual behavior, paying particular attention to personal characteristics, along with age, gender, professional experience, and their manifestation in the work environment. The most commonly used in modern psychology models of personality are presented, which outline the essential dimensions that determine the behavior of the individual, emphasizing the personality traits in the model for the "big five" and its development in a model for measuring the six personality traits. The nature and manifestations of negative and positive work behavior through burnout syndrome and counterproductive behavior in the workplace and well-being and engagement at work are analyzed.
There are many significant from a theoretical and applied point of view results that reveal the role of demographic factors, profession, organizational climate, but especially the personal determinants of work behavior. Recommendations for prevention and intervention of counterproductive behavior and burnout syndrome, applicable in an organizational context, are presented, along with approaches to increase employee engagement and well-being. The application of positive psychology in work is affirmed, revealing the potential of psychology as a science and its applicability to improve individual well-being and organizational efficiency.
