Making profit is important to people. Most of all, improving the bottom line is the primary objective for major companies. “For Robert Shively, learned that his employer, Occidental Petroleum Corporation, or also-known-as Oxy Pete,” wanted to forgo the guaranteed-employer pension plans for the less demanding 401(K) system where it is based on contributions from employee’s pay rather than from the employer’s profit.

OB is an interdisciplinary field that includes psychology, sociology, economics, political science, management and communications. (Bauer p. 10). The study of Labor or Industrial Relations (LIR) is a subset of organizational behavior topics and is very specialized; however, it can provide insights into the broader view of employer-employee relations in any organization. Wages, benefits, work-life balance issues, workplace conditions, career opportunities, employee development and training programs are just a few of the issues that HR professionals currently manage.
