Abstract (Summary)

To meet customer demands, organizations must continuously change to stay competitive in the external market. This can be challenging for organizations that have employees who are fearful of organizational changes. The purpose of this study was to understand if employees would be more likely to accept organizational changes if they had previously established psychological safety. The researcher conducted 12 qualitative interviews to assess the participants level of psychological safety pre and post organizational change. Due to the limited data, the study’s research question was not adequately addressed. The findings from this study indicated psychological safety is impacted by management. A discussion is provided to provide suggestions for future research that may be able to build off the present study.
