Purpose: Relevant literature in the field suggests that attitudes of the employees toward organizational change have direct impact on the success or failure of the change efforts. These effects and outcomes can be seen in different forms. In some cases, positive attitudes of the employees can enhance the change efforts while in other cases negative attitudes toward change can hinder the change process and cause failures in the change initiatives. Our study aims to reveal the relations between attitudes toward organizational change and change-specific cynicism.
Design/Methodology/Approach: A sample of 336 surveys were collected from six leading companies supplying materials to major domestic appliances companies in Turkey.
Findings: According to the results of this study, there is a strong correlation between change-specific cynicism and employees’ beliefs, thoughts and attitudes toward change.
Originality/Value: This paper sheds light on the complex relations between employee attitudes toward organizational change and change-specific cynicism from a non-western standpoint.
Keywords: Cynicism, Change-Specific Cynicism, Organizational Change, Resistance to Change
