The Congruence of Psychological Contract Questionnaire was developed to assess the level of compatibility in the psychological contracts held by employees. Though there are few tools used for psychological contract, we don't come across with any in Indian context. Therefore a sincere attempt has been made by the researcher to fulfill that objective. Based upon the dimensions outlined through the interview with university employees, items were generated from literature. The split half reliability coefficient of the questionnaire was found out to be .72. Exploratory factor analysis of 34-item pool yielded a 24-item measure with three distinct factors namely congruence in role, congruence in power and congruence in culture.

Abstract


The Congruence of Psychological Contract Questionnaire was developed to assess the level of compatibility in the psychological contracts held by employees. Though there are few tools used for psychological contract, we don't come across with any in Indian context. Therefore a sincere attempt has been made by the researcher to fulfill that objective. Based upon the dimensions outlined through the interview with university employees, items were generated from literature. The split half reliability coefficient of the questionnaire was found out to be .72. Exploratory factor analysis of 34-item pool yielded a 24-item measure with three distinct factors namely congruence in role, congruence in power and congruence in culture.
