Contracts in employment are of two kinds: the formal, written contract and the equally important, informal and unwritten psychological contract-how people think they should be treated. Both involve rights, obligations and expectations on the part of the employer and the employee, and a breach in one can have important effects on the other. For example, how people feel they are being treated by the organization can affect their perception of their levels of pay. Organizations and the Psychological Contract has two main aims in exploring these issues: to act as a handbook for practicing managers, and as a basic text in management courses. Organizations and the Psychological Contract has two main aims in exploring these issues in the organizational context: to act as a handbook for practicing managers, and as a basic text in management courses. Relevant theories are explained and developed using practical examples, self-assessment exercises, and case studies. This is a revised and much expanded version of Managing People at Work, with the addition of chapters on Selection and Career Development, Understanding and Coping with Change, Empowerment and Self-Management, and the Behavioural Approach to Motivation. As well as undertaking research into many aspects of organizational life, the authors have many years' experience as consultants, acting for industrial and commercial organizations in all sectors of the economy.

[ Organizations and the Psychological Contract: Managing People at Work World History; 44 By ( Author ) Jul-1996 Paperback

Review:

′I congratulate the authors of this book for their comprehensive coverage of all aspects of behaviour at work. Although primarily written to be a textbook, and written by teachers of organisational psychology, it is by no means dry and academic.′ People Management

′I recommend it for use particularly in graduate courses and for advance undergraduate courses. Corporations that provide their own in–house training and development programmes should also give this book serious consideration.′ Journal of Occupational and Organisational Psychology.
