ISSN or ISBN
The objective of this research was to explore the nature of employee commitment and to determine if this commitment is enhanced if the company encourages a climate of inclusive change and whether there is a difference in the nature of this relationship based on nationality. The survey was conducted amongst 121 respondents in full-time employment in Thailand and Ireland. The findings indicate that change management styles in both countries show some statistically significant changes along with room for improvement and that the appetite for more active participation in change management programmes does exist. Limitations and implications for management and future research are presented.
