Does treating the permanent workforce well matter to temporary employees?

Bozionelos, N. and Nikolaou, I. (2010) 'Does treating the permanent workforce well matter to temporary employees?', Academy of management perspectives., 24 (1). pp. 84-86.


The article focuses on a study by Bard Kuvaas and Anders Dysvik testing their hypothesis that the development opportunities for permanent employees affect how temporary employees view their positions, their job behavior, and their social exchange relationship with the organization. The authors note that Kuvaas and Dysvik employ a social information processing perspective in which the social climate of an organization is a factor. The authors report that this hypothesis was validated in Kuvaas and Dysvik's survey of 375 temporary employees.
