Industrial Sociology is the study of the motivations and behaviors of people at the workplace. Many descriptions in this field tend to be nearly anthropological in presentation, as if an outside observer from Mars visited and objectively observed the workings in an office or assembly line.
Some of the categorical discussions within Industrial Sociology include:
Who talks to whom, under what conditions, written, verbal, and non-verbal communication, secrecy, cliques
The structure and flow of power and decision making, the relationship of skills with wages:
Expectations of the company from society, vendors, customers, neighbors
