The Workplace Psychological Contract
Do employers have responsibilities to employees beyond the explicit terms and conditions of employment and whatever statutory or regulatory requirements might exist?And, if there is an implicit unstated agreement between employees and employers, how can leaders ensure that they uphold their side of the agreement whose details may not be fully understood by the parties?On this week’s episode Mike and special guest Julie Develin discuss the psychological contract, which Julie describes as “the exchange relationship between the organizations and their people.”During this thirty-minute episode, the speakers clarify what the psychological contract is and how it has changed since the start of the pandemic. What happens when employees and leaders aren’t on the same page with regards to the psychological contract?
