PSYCHOLOGICAL CONTRACTS IN ORGANIZATION
Psychological Contracts: The set of expectations help by an employee concerning what he or she
will contribute to an organization(contributions) and what the organization will provide the
employee(inducements) in return
All organizations face the basic challenge of managing psychological contracts
Massive wave of downsizing and cutbacks have complicated the process of managing psychological
contracts
if psychological contracts are created, maintained and manage effectively the result is likely to be
workers who are satisfied and motivated
Human relations: Interactions between employers and employees and their attitudes toward one
another
IMPORTANCE OF JOB SATISFACTION
Job satisfaction: The pleasure and feeling of accomplishment employees derive from performing
their jobs well
satisfied employees have high morale- the overall attitude of employees toward their workplace
¾ determined by job satisfaction, and satisfaction with pay, benefits, co-workers and promotion
opportunities
Ensuring employees are satisfied=management gains (b/c more efficient and smooth running
company)

accepted view of life in the workplace. If workers are motivated by money then paying them more
would make them work more.

Meanwhile the firm that analyzed jobs and found better ways to perform them would be able to
produce more goods, more cheaply, make higher profits and thus pay and motivate- workers better
than it competitors

components and devising more efficient tools and machine for performing them
Behaviour Theory: The Hawthorne Studies
Challenged the classical theory of human relations management
Any action on the part of management that made workers believe they were receiving special
attention caused worker productivity to rise which is known as the Hawthorne effect
