INTRODUCTIONChange management is related to the process of transitioning individuals, teams andorganizations. This is done with the help of certain methods that redirect the use of resources,business processes and budget allocations to reshape the company (Change Management 101 -Fred Nickols,2010). The present report is based on the impact of organizational change on thebehavior of the employees. The report also explains rationale behind change. Apart from this,appropriateness of the decisions is elaborated that are taken by Sainsbury to make effectivechange at the workplace. Furthermore, methods for handling the emotional impact on people aredescribed which happen due to organizational change.1) Rationale behind the change, how sensible was this and how well was the rationalecommunicatedHawthorne effect statesthat increase in the worker's productivity will help the entireorganization to the major issues regarding the issues of change. It also states that individualbehavior may be altered by doing the study on behavior of people. The major finding of thisresearch on Western Electric Company in Chicago demonstrated that the study is done to pleasedthe worker so that they can get satisfied from the major changes. This is done to receive attentionfrom the researchers who show interest in them (Hornstein, 2015).Apart from this, the reason thatis responsible behind the change is the desire of theorganization towards its growth. The study conducted on the organization was expected to lastone year but the researchers set back each time and it takes almost five years in completion ofproject. According toHawthorne effect, there are many rationales which are affecting behaviorof workers such as aptitudes of individuals, effect of group norms on the productivity, system ofworkplace and changing attitude of workers (Smith, 2016). The major reason behind the studyof human behavior is that it will affect the impact of human activity on productivity of theorganization.But in against of this, the Hawthorne effect will not get succeed as every seniorofficer will not be able to give support to every employee. It is also not possible for the clients togive extra attention on their services provider.Another example of organizational change is Dragons Oil, which is headquartered inUAE. The organization is based in Dubai at the initial stage of the production but later it was
acquired by Emirates National Oil Company (Maurer, 2016).The reason benign this is reductionin reduction of oil prices in the international market.Through conducting the study, it will be possible by the company to find out the majorreason behind the impact of human relations. Another main reason which is found behind thechange is that people get bored from the regular duties. Apart from this, decrease in the interestof people towards performing the duties is also a rationale behind the change (Kang, 2015).Furthermore, the reason is developing cooperation among the employee so they will performtheir duties more effectively.Sensibility of the study:From decades, Hawthorne study has been helping to provide therationale for human relations in the organization. For this, two researches have been used for anew procedure which is called time series analysis. In this study, original variables are includedin the great depression and in the instance of a managerial discipline in which two insubordinateand mediocre workers are replaced by two different productive workers (Wilson, 2015). Thiswill help the organization to find difference in productivity by changing the role of people. Inthis, one person takes the role of straw boss.Then, they discover that production is more affected due to change in the role of thepersons. It makes impact on the job productivity of the employees as people like to performduties of others as they need change in their daily activity (Child, J., 2015). Other than this, themost sensible reason is continuous reduction in the profits of the organizations. This will makeWestern Electric Company to make focus on the study of individual behavior within theorganization (Savino, 2016). Other than this, the organization also thinks that group incentiveplans also make positive impact on productivity of the organization. For assessing the change,the study is conducted.How well was the rationale communicated:For conducting the study, the major rationales are communicated with the employees tosolve the problems of workplace. For this, Western Electric Company conducts personalcommunication with the staff. They make communication with the employees about theimportance of change in the organization (Nelson, 2015). They also communicate them benefitsof conducting the study. Different duties are interchanged with others so that people will be ableto perform duties of others.
