Understanding employee-employer relationships during bridge employment: A psychological contract perpective

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    I will investigate the nature of the employee-employer relationships during bridge employment (i.e., paid work after retirement from the career job) using a psychological contract framework. A psychological contract refers to the informal understanding of mutual obligations among employees and employers and its fulfilment is vital for a productive employment relationship. The research will study the development, content and implications of breach of the psychological contract, from the perspective of employees and employers. The research findings will make older workers better equipped to engage in bridge employment and the employers better prepared to attract and retain older workers.
