Temporary agency workers’ well-being, attitudes and behaviors: Motivations really matter?
M. J. Chambel*
Main Abstract Content: Temporary agency work (TAW) is a category of temporary employment arrangements that is characterized like the others by limited duration but has the specificity of a triangular employment relation that include the worker, the agency – the company that contract he or she – and the client – the company where he/she develops his/her diary professional activity (Kalleberg, 2000). 60.9 million of people gained access to work through agency work contract, and in European Countries, temporary agency employment represents 1.7% of the rate of employment (CIETT, 2015).
Gallagher and Connelly (2008) proposed that it is necessary to evaluate whether the existing theory developed in the context of standard employment is adaptable to contingent workers. By building on the self-determination theory (Ryan & Deci, 2000), this symposium includes five studies that analyze the relevance of motivations to explain TAW well-being, considering different mediator or moderators.  This symposium involves nine researchers from three European countries – Portugal, Italy and Germany – that work in seven universities.
