The Experience of Change and Its Impact on Workers Who Self-Identify as Doing Well with Change that Affects Their Work
Borgen, William A.; Butterfield, Lee D.; Amundson, Norman E.
Journal of Employment Counseling, v47 n1 p2-11 Mar 2010
This study sought to understand more about the experience of workers who self-identified as doing well within the context of volatile and changing work situations. The research results indicate that even those workers who report doing well with change experience a myriad of work-related, personal life, attitude and approach, and professional life changes. The impacts of these changes can be categorized by theme: psychological, professional/work, emotional, personal/family life, physical, and cultural. Results are framed within the psychological thriving literature. Implications for organizations, counselors, and future research are discussed. (Contains 1 figure.)
