Staff of banks were selected as subjects to explore the influences of achievement motivation, psychological contracts, and work attitudes. Results were: 1) Achievement motivation significantly influences psychological contract. 2) Psychological contract significantly influences work attitude. 3) Achievement motivation significantly influences work attitude. 4) Achievement motivation significantly influences work attitude through psychological contracts.
