Enhancing Work Satisfaction

Work expectations are those things people consider likely to happen in their job situation, either now or in the future. In a typical employment situation, certain expectations – such as salary, hours and job duties – are clearly understood by both employer and employee. Other expectations, however, are so intimately linked to an individual’s concept of work that they often go unspoken or unacknowledged. Whether spoken or unspoken, a “psychological contract” of needs and expectations exists between employees and employers that affect job satisfaction and performance. This program provides a framework to help employees and managers understand and discuss these needs and expectations.
