  • Psychological Contracting across Employment Situations - PSYCONES, Current Evidence concerning Employment Contracts and Employee/organizational Well being among Workers in Europe, State of the Art


This report wants to outline the 'state of the art' with regard to research and facts and figures relevant for the PSYCONES project, as previously defined by Isaksson et al. (2003, p.1): 'The general aim of the PSYCONES project is the investigation of how changing patterns of employment relations affect well-being and quality of life for European citizens. More specifically, we propose to investigate the 'psychological contract' as a possible intervening factor affecting the relationship between degree of job permanency and individual well-being.'
