Abstract

Change in organizations has become unavoidable due to the unprecedented environmental complexity, market competition and technological eruptions. Also, it became a fascinating area of research and as a result of this, previous studies have explored wide range of organizational change aspects; mainly change resistance, change communication, change impacts and leading change. However, it has been less considered to investigate organizational change acceptance from the perspectives of the individual employee and more importantly, the underlying factors that may lead to this acceptance behavior. The purpose of this study is to probe whether factors i.e., attitude, subjective norm and personal inclination to knowledge are significant influencing factors for employees’ transformational change acceptance behavior. Hypotheses were tested among 170 academic employees selected from a higher learning institution in Malaysia (Universiti Teknologi Malaysia). Results from regression analysis indicate that employees’ positive attitude and personal inclination to knowledge behaviors are significant influencing factors of transformational change acceptance behavior. However, the influence of employees’ subjective norms on transformational change acceptance was not found significant in this study.
