2) "a psychological contract is a belief that an exchange partner is obligated to provide inducements, such as fair compensation, in exchange for one’s own contributions, such as loyalty or high quality work". (Lee, Liu, Rousseau, Hui, & Chen, 2011; Rousseau & McLean Parks, 1993)

3) Henry Ford asked, ‘‘Why is it that I always get the whole person when all I really want is a pair of hands?’’ (Pollard, 1996, p. 25).
