Abstract

A psychological contract is an important aspect of human resources management that human resource practitioners and students must have a good understanding of. The significance of human resources in improving corporate performance intertwined with a larger interest in competitions and prestige are increasing, which has made psychological contract relevant to researchers and managers of organizations. Therefore, this research examines the relationship between psychological contract and motivation and how they influence the level of employee’s work engagement. Using a sample of 184 employees at the Nigerian Tribune, this study, therefore, suggests that the extent to which psychological contract is fulfilled is positively related to employees’ willingness to perform better. Also, the results indicate that a positive relationship exists between psychological contract fulfillment and employee retention as psychological contract serves as a motivation for employees to remain committed to an organization. Lastly, this study further offers recommendations on how management should indulge themselves in the process of considering employees goal in relation to organizational goals.
