In order to create a more efficient link between human resources management and longer-term corporate goals, many companies are putting their faith in strategic competence management. This article takes the concept of the psychological contract as a basis for investigating the associated mutual expectations of employers and employees and highlights the significance of recognition of competencies within this context. The foundation of the analysis is formed by company case studies which were conducted as part of the BIBB research project “Company approaches to competence assessment and to the recognition of competencies acquired by informal means” (BAKA).
