Industrial Sociology

My Distance Learning College


Industrial sociology concerns itself with two basic characteristics of industry and the workplace. It examines the production of goods and services in society, and specifically the nature of the social relations involved in the production process.

These social relations may be of a harmonious nature, or they may create conditions of conflict. The second element is the analysis of the tasks that individuals perform in the workplace to see if these tasks provide for the satisfaction of human needs.

Understanding the industrial arena from the sociological concept is a major advantage for anyone interested in the workforce.

  • Sociology: A general overview
