    Ciao a tutti,
    devo tradurre l'espressione "promissory beliefs" e mi trovo in difficoltà.
    Riporto il contesto in cui è inserita:

    It is important to note that while the promissory beliefs involved in transactional contracts are indeed a part of work in general, they are limited to these exchanges. Relational contracts may include economic exchanges but they also move beyond them to other non-economic promissory beliefs.

    Qualcuno è in grado di aiutarmi?
    Grazie!

    Mi scuso per non aver fornito abbastanza contesto. Cercherò di rimediare.

    Il testo è estrapolato da uno studio dal titolo Antecedents and consequences of psychological contracts: Does organizational culture really matter?
    Quindi stiamo parlando di un testo scientifico che analizza diverse dinamiche psicologiche all'interno degli ambienti lavorativi. Qui il link al testo. L'espressione "promissory beliefs" appare solamente due volte nel testo:

    «Two distinct types of psychological contracts have been identified (Rousseau, 1990). Principal factor analysis indicates there are two separate factors: transactional and relational contracts (Raja et al., 2004). Transactional contracts involve specific economic exchanges between the employer and employee. These contracts take place within a specified time period, usually with a short time orientation. Transactional contracts are often narrow in scope and definition (Rousseau, 1990). In addition, these contracts involve limited connection between the employee and employer (Raja et al., 2004). Relational contracts, on the other hand, are often based on non-economic/socio-emotional exchanges. They are openended and do not cover any specified time period. In addition, relational contracts may change over time with a broad scope and definition (Rousseau, 1990). Relational contracts revolve around trust, respect, and loyalty (De Meuse et al., 2001). It is important to note that while the promissory beliefs involved in transactional contracts are indeed a part of work in general; they are limited to these exchanges. Relational contracts may include economic exchanges but they also move beyond them to other non-economic promissory beliefs. Surprisingly, scholars have not given much attention to antecedents for the two, very different, types of psychological contracts. The next section stresses the relevance of organizational culture.»

    Mi occorre una traduzione scopo tesi universitaria.
    Spero di aver dato abbastanza informazioni.
