Abstract

This study examines the mediating effects of organization-based self-esteem on the relationships between perceived psychological contracts and employee outcomes. We also examine the effects of perceived employment opportunities on the OBSE-employee outcome relationships. We found that OBSE mediates the effects of relational contracts on employee satisfaction and job performance. OBSE did not mediate effects of transactional contracts. We also found that perceived employment opportunities moderated effects of OBSE on job satisfaction and turnover intentions. We conclude that long-term investments in employees pay positive returns to employers, and that employers should benchmark their rewards and employment practices to ensure external equity.
