Research on emotions in organizations has organically evolved through academic scholarship. Today, as the field matures, there is growing attention to integrating the study of emotion in organizations within mainstream theories and approaches across the sub-domains of organizational research. This broadening of perspective is inspiring novel theoretical insights and methodological approaches for studying emotions and worklife. The complex nature of emotions and unique challenges posed in measuring emotion provides fertile ground to craft new ways of researching the dimensions, underlying phenomenon, causes, and the significant role that emotion plays in organizations. The choice of theme of this volume reflects these new ways of studying emotions in organizations, offering both practitioners and academics a rich vein to mine for planning future endeavors. Chapters in this volume showcase scholarly advances in empirical research and theory development relating to existing notions of emotions in worklife, as well as innovations in terms of the methods, theory, and contexts to which emotions research is being applied.
