Abstract:This structured literature review has the purpose to work out antecedents which make co-workers more likely to accept another idiosyncratic deal. By conducting a thorough literature review where 20 academic articles regarding idiosyncratic deals and their antecedents for acceptance are examined it has become clear that there are basically three antecedents which have an influence on co-workers’ acceptance of another idiosyncratic deal. These are namely the co-workers’ perception of the relation with the recipient of the I-deal, the relation with the leader but also the overall perceived organizational justice. The analysis of the literature results in propositions, which are up to further empirical testing, and a subsequent conceptual model regarding idiosyncratic deals’ acceptance and its antecedents. Additionally there are guidelines derived from the analysis which can be applied by HR managers when planning to implement idiosyncratic deals as an HR practice. However the analysis and recommendations of this review must be read with caution since it is still up to the individual employee to what extent s/he accepts another idiosyncratic deal and furthermore there are global trends which have an influence on workplace management practices which in turn are likely to influence the level of I-deals acceptance.
