It is comfortable and reassuring in the short term,but hazardous in the long term. If they refuse to be innovating, they will quickly fall below.This resistance in change has many drawbacks in the Taxi companies such as resistance inchange will show many negative effects on the workers and employees in the company such aslack in the morality etc. Now let us consider those factors which are affecting the taxi driverscompanies a lot.Lower MoraleWhenthe taxi drivers company resist the change in their company then many ofthe workers in the company thinks optimistic regarding their future in the company and thesemay promote lack of communications between the workers and work morale and also disturbsthe recruiting process in the company Clashes between the workers in the company may alsooccur.Lessened EfficiencyWhen all the workers in the taxi drivers company are working to resist thechange occurred in the company then automatically their concentration on the work efficiency
