Abstract

This study is an investigation of the Psychological Contract among temporary employee’s in a chosen organisation. Temporary employee’s were invited to complete a questionnaire, which sought to identify the psychological contract they have with their employer. The study highlighted the dimensions of the psychological contract by measuring perceptions of employee and employer obligations. Findings suggest that employees are willing to sacrifice security and commitment in favour of employability. Organisational implications and recommendations are identified.
