In this chapter the authors explore the ideological components of psychological contracts for volunteer and employment research. In particular, they highlight the role ideology and the psychological contract has played in progressing our understanding of social exchange relationships in the workplace and propose critical questions to aid in furthering the integration of the ideological components of psychological contracts into the broader psychological contract framework. They also explore the understanding of how values and ideology may serve as a basis for these social exchange relationships, which are essential for building on management and organizational behaviour research and understanding the impact the changing nature of employment (in both the voluntary and the paid sector) has for employee and organizational outcomes.
