Abstract
The study aimed to explore the relationship between perceived organizational support and readiness for change mediated by affective commitment. The empirical data was collected from 144 non-probability convenient samples of the government employees from various levels and positions. Readiness for change was measured using the Readiness for Change Scale, how much support employees felt they got from their organization was assessed using the Survey of Perceived Organizational Support, and an Affective Commitment subscale was used to measure employees' affective commitment. The study results showed that perceived organizational support improves employee readiness for change as a consequence of the mediation of affective commitment. Employees who perceive their organization as supportive will have a higher positive emotional attachment to the organization and a more positive response to the change process in their organization. Additionally, this paper discusses the theoretical and methodological implications of these findings and offers direction for the future research in this area.
