Abstract

Change is inevitable and in order to successfully manage a process of change, business leaders have to acknowledge and understand the forces that drive it. This study aims to analyse the role that employees may have in a process of change, as an internal force of change within the organization, along with other drivers of change such as managers or the organizational particularities. A secondary outcome is to understand why in many cases employees have a negative attitude toward change, being a source of resistance to change rather than being supportive and enhancing it. Based on the analysis of more than 200 completed questionnaires, this article presents the conclusions regarding the contribution that employees from different Romanian organization have in a process of change and the reasons why they do so.
