Abstract

In boundaryless career era, the organization has become increasingly small, agile and rapid, showing the characteristics of informationization, decentralization, virtualization, flattening and miniaturization. The psychological contract between employees and the organization has changed from “relationship type” to “transaction type”. The purpose of this paper is to explore the new changes of the psychological contract of knowledge workers and the corresponding management strategies under the background of boundaryless career era. In the boundaryless career era, the psychological contract characterized by employee loyalty which is in exchange for employment security is gradually replaced by the new psychological contract characterized by performance which is in exchange for employment ability. Therefore, enterprises are required to establish a learning organization to enhance the external employability of knowledge workers through career guidance, and strengthen the practice of human resource management to develop and maintain this new psychological contract, so as to realize the long-term sustainable development of the organization.
