Supervisor Psychological Contract Management
It is the aim of this chapter to review the available literature on supervisor psychological contract management. This will include a summary of research on supervisor roles, tasks and behaviours with regard to psychological contract management. Other relevant research on determining the importance of supervisor behaviours for their subordinates' psychological contracts, on antecedents of supervisor psychological contract management and on interfaces with human resource management will be reviewed. It will be shown that although a number of authors have highlighted the central importance of supervisors, there are few indications of specific supervisor behaviours or practices that contribute to facilitating positive psychological contracts. Nonetheless, this literature is helpful for identifying the dimensions involved in supervisor psychological contract management.
