Résumé
Positive attitudes toward change (PATC) are an important current issue in public
organizations facing profound financial and managerial reforms. This study aims to
identify social and organizational antecedents of PATC. The investigated population
is composed of middle managers working in Swiss public hospitals (N = 720), which
are currently being confronted by major reforms. Partial mediation effects of
organizational commitment (OC) in the relationships between independent variables
and PATC are also controlled. The findings show that perceived social support (work
relationships with colleagues and supervisors) as well as perceived organizational
support (employee voice and participation, information and communication, work-life
balance) are positively and significantly related to PATC. Stress perception is shown
to have a negative impact on PATC. This article provides valuable contributions with
respect to antecedents of attitudes toward change in a population of public middle
managers.
