The effect of institutional predisposition on experiences of a merger

Goldman, GA

Abstract:
Change research in general and merger research in particular tends to accentuate the individual employee’s context and experience of the change event. This paper explores employees’ dispositions toward the institution they hail from and how this shapes their reactions to a merger between two South African higher education institutions. Findings of this study, which followed a qualitative methodology, indicate that a positive institutional predisposition contributes to job satisfaction in the historical pre-merger institution but has an inverse effect on how these employees react to the news of an impending merger.
