Psychological Contracts in Employment
- Denise Rousseau - Carnegie Mellon University, USA
- Rene Schalk - Tilburg University, NL
This book combines the cross-national perspectives of organizational scholars from thirteen countries to examine how societies differ in the nature of psychological contracts in employment and how global business initiatives are bridging these differences.
The contributors include social scientists with deep knowledge of the particular societies they describe, and whose personal scholarship involves psychological contract phenomena locally as well as abroad.
Readers of Denise Rousseau's award winning book, Psychological Contract in Organizations (SAGE 1995) will welcome the extension of this ground-breaking work into the global arena.
"This book is valuable not only to anyone interested in the theory of psychological employment contracts, but also for anyone wanting to improve their understanding of the work contexts and cultures of various countries."
