Abstract

Observes that changes in the nature of employment and career development in the private sector have also affected the National Health Service in a similar way. Highlights how economic pressures have forced organizations to rationalize their workforces, and with this has come an end to the psychological contract which has existed between employers and employees. Outlines the nature of those changes, and their effect on individuals who need to take responsibility for their own career development. Suggests that there is now a need to develop a new moral contract between employers and employees. In return for job security, employers can offer a range of developmental opportunities to enable employees to become more employable when new employment is required.
