Title: Literature Review of the Psychological Contract Theory: Its Practical Utility
Authors: Khawaja, Moeen Ashfaq
Award date: 2011
Abstract: This literature review surveys the most recent research on psychological contract theory between 2008 and 2011. The review seeks to establish the practical utility and relevance of the theory of psychological contract in the present context and in the backdrop of highly unpredictable economic and social landscape. The findings of the review have been organised into five sections: (1) factors that shape the psychological contract, (2) influences of individual differences, (3) contents of the psychological contract, (4) reciprocity or mutuality of the exchange relationship, and (5) employee and organisational outcomes. The review finds that the most recent research on psychological contract theory has become diverse, multidisciplinary and highly relevant with practical implications for organisational managers.
