Het psychologisch contract van tijdelijke en vaste werknemers. De rol van contractvoorkeur en tewerkstellingsvooruitzichten
AbstractIn this study, we investigate (1) differences in the psychological contract of temporaries and permanents, and (2) the extent to which possible differences are explained by the preferences and prospects of temporaries. Three psychological contract types are distinguished. The relational psychological contract is highly socio-emotional in nature, while economic content is foremost in the transactional psychological contract. Employability considerations dominate the new psychological contract. Results (N=624) show that the psychological contract of permanents is more relational and more transactional as compared to the psychological contract of temporaries. No such differences are found with respect to the new psychological contract. Preference for temporary employment or volition is negatively related to both relational and transactional psychological contracts, while it is unrelated to the new psychological contract. Employment prospects are positively related to the relational and the transactional psychological contract. They are unrelated to the new psychological contract.
