Abstract

Samenvatting

De vraagstelling in deze kwalitatieve studie luidt: Hoe ziet het meervoudig psychologisch contract van jonge flexwerkers met een intermediair en hun opdrachtgever(s) eruit, hoe verhoudt zich dat tot hun onderliggende werkwaarden, en hoe draagt de driehoeksrelatie tussen de flexwerker, de intermediair en opdrachtgever bij aan het vervullen van het psychologisch contract? Op basis van 25 semigestructureerde interviews met jonge flexwerkers die via een arbeids- of freelance-overeenkomst met een intermediair in het basisonderwijs werken, wordt aangetoond dat hun meervoudig psychologisch vooral gevormd wordt door de psychologisch contractdimensies ‘inhoud van het werk’ (met de onderliggende werkwaarden passie, autonomie en zingeving) en ‘organisatiebeleid’ (met de onderliggende werkwaarden flexibiliteit, werkprivébalans, communicatie en maatschappelijke verantwoordelijkheid). Loopbaanontwikkeling, sociale contacten en beloning blijken minder belangrijke psychologisch-contracttermen. Doordat de aard van de arbeidsrelatie met de intermediair en de school en de arbeidscondities aansluiten bij de waarden en verwachtingen van de jonge flexwerkers wordt hun meervoudig psychologisch contract vervuld. Contractschendingen kunnen veelal worden voorkomen of gerepareerd. Contractbreuk met een school heeft doorgaans geen effect op de vervulling van het meervoudige psychologisch contract, omdat een andere opdrachtgever gemakkelijk kan worden gevonden. Paradoxaal genoeg faciliteert de flexibiliteit van het meervoudig psychologisch contract zo een langdurige relationele band met de intermediair.
