A certain amount of organisational change is to be expected in every organisation. However, when major organisational structural change is experienced, a certain level of planning, communication and support for people experiencing change can greatly enhance the organisations capacity to adapt and sustain employer branding.
The Ballymun Women’s Resource Centre encountered unplanned change in 2007. As a community based organisation, this project had not encountered this level of change within its history. The current investigation outlines the driving force behind the change and studies the organisational experience of the Ballymun Women’s Resource Centre as it encountered an unplanned change situation. It takes an inclusive approach to acknowledgement of the change experience, reflection on senior staff team member’s collective and individual experiences, identification of organisational learning and potential developments and its incorporation into fixture change management plans.
In today’s economic climate, community and voluntary organisations need to have structures in place to support organisational objectives and increase flexibility to adapt within uncertain times. It is important for organisations to know what factors can contribute positively or negatively to change events.
