Invisible Ink: The Psychological Contract and the Employee Experience

Explore the implied exchange relationship between employers and employees

Within the words “written” in invisible ink are important agreements between the employer and the employee that shape the relationship, thus affecting employee experience, productivity, satisfaction, and several other important metrics.

If you work in HR, or if you manage people, you’ve entered a contract that is in effect from day one of the employment association. This contract is not written, and it cannot be seen, signed, or notarized.

In this webinar, Julie Develin, MSHRD, SHRM-SCP, senior partner of the HCM Advisory Group at UKG, will discuss the concept of the psychological contract at work.
