Abstract

While research has clearly demonstrated that psychological contracts can have considerable impact upon workplace relations and employee performance, research into the formation, content and effects of psychological contracts between academics and the University has been very limited. This paper explores the content and key elements of the psychological contracts formed by academics within the Faculty of Commerce at Charles Sturt University (CSU). Empirical evidence from a series of focus groups conducted with academics indicates that their commitments to society and the social good, one's discipline, student learning and development, and the institution of the University, play a prominent part in the development and moderation of their psychological contracts.
