What’s in the Contract?

When you engage in a contract with someone as a freelancer or contractor, there are expectations on both sides of what the job entails and what its value is. If the nature of the contractual relationship isn’t clear there can be confusion, dissatisfaction and conflict.

This is also true in the employer/employee relationship. What exactly is the nature of the work you’re being contracted to do? We explore three types of contract, the relative value, the likely timescales and the balance of power. These are all sources of job satisfaction…or disappointment and demotivation if they’re not clear or not shared between employer and contractor.

In this thinkspot you’ll learn: –

  • The three fundamental types of psychological contract
  • The power relationship in each contract type
  • The likely timescale and why it will end
  • The underlying relationship between employer and contractor
