The psychological contract is a concept used to explain the dynamics of the employment relationship between the employer and the employee. The psychological contract refers to the subjective perceptions of employees regarding organizational obligations. Organizational policies, procedures, practices, and managers convey information about what is expected from the employees and what the organization is obliged to provide to employees. It is assumed that managers from all levels play an active role in employees' perceptions of the organizational procedures. The supervisors are claimed to be effective in the formation and progression of the psychological contract as a representative of the organization. The aim of this study is to determine the effects of the perceived supervisory support on the content and fulfillment of the psychological contract. In the study conducted with 224 white-collar participants working in the private sector, it was observed that the supervisory support had a positive effect on the psychological contract content. In addition, it was determined that as the supervisory support increased, the level of fulfillment of the psychological contract increased as well.
