Consequence of change

Organisational structures change

  • Departments get restructured which means previously senior personnel get demoted whilst younger staff get promotions
  • Staff working groups may be split up affecting friendships

The workforce (anxiety) - fears introduced by change

  • Fears of health risks from working with computers, back problems etc
  • Fears of redundancy with lost jobs. Staff wages is the biggest cost to companies. Less staff are often needed to do the same amount of work once computers are introduced
