The extant change literature consistently asserts that employees need to be enthusiastic and committed, if organizational change initiatives are expected to succeed. A key aim of this study is to explore ways in which employees perceive the change practices and processes of their managers and their organizations more broadly, and which in turn, set in train responses that impact positive attitudes and behaviors. Focusing on key justice dimensions as the lens through which employees evaluate change management practices, this study argues that change effectiveness and employee well-being can be improved through greater vigilance and sensitivity towards appropriate communication strategies and organizational support.
