Text (Published Version)
This paper examines the employment trends in the Australian banking industry and assesses the impact of restructuring. How have the organisational changes in the big four banks affected the psychological contract? Utilizing quantitative and qualitative data from a survey of 1500 managers in one large bank, it concludes that the traditional psychological contract is crumbling. However, it has not been replaced by a new human resource management strategy by the big four banks who remain uncertain how to proceed in the current environment.
