2015. Vol. 5. No. 1. P. 59–72 [issue contents]
The main goal of this article is to look through the psychological literature on social risks problem aiming to find verified tools for classifying and measurement of social risks. We have attempted to cover and reflect the overall picture of social risks. Theoretical analysis of existing studies allowed to summarize and to highlight the areas of current state of social risks in organizations researches. We have found that social risks made its input in connection with the partial factors and extreme conditions, while in organizational psychology social risks have not been studied enough.Our typology of the social risks based on the ranking of students and the expert assessments. We also have compared them with observable phenomena and factors. Significant social risks ranked in the top positions of our classification, were they have been identified as organizational risks. Existential risks have less references. There were risk of uncertainty environment, risk of activity meaning loss, status risk and value risk. Risk of emotional infection, as well as the risk of communication, was assigned communication type of risk. Diagnostics directed to self-understanding of their own career path could help to choose relevant reducing means for the negative expectations. We consider gender approach for studying as the most perspective. This approach focuses attention on comparing the features of perception and the roles and stylistic peculiarities of the leaders both male and female. Our study is aiming at solving the organizational problem and at complementing the contemporary models and tools for understanding risks arising during the joint work.
