Method of the Empirical Study
Ideally, every study on psychological contracts would involve a qualitative approach to identifying mutual obligations because perceived mutual obligations can be highly individualised. However, this is not economical and makes identification of relationships with other variables difficult. Neither Herriot, Manning and Kidd (1997) nor Baccili (2001), who have carried out large qualitative studies focussing on the content of the psychological contract, have developed their qualitative findings into a quantitative measure.
