Abstract:An organisation needs to identify factors that facilitate an employee's change-supportive behaviour. By finding facilitated factors it is more likely that employees engage in a planned or ongoing organisational change. Changing-supportive behaviour is the voluntary involvement of employees beyond their normal working routine. One identified facilitated factor is reflection within the different an organisational context. Reflection in an organisational frame means that employees are able to think critically about different aspects of their work. This study aimed to investigate if reflection has a direct influence on changing supportive behaviour. In addition, it was checked whether age moderates this relationship. In total, 33 employees from different Dutch companies participated in this study, by answering an online questionnaire. The conducted MANOVA indicated a significant prediction of championing with change by reflection on work task performance. There was significant finding within the moderation effect of age on reflection on work tasks and championing with change. Additionally, results showed a significant moderation effect of age on reflection on work task performance and compliance with change. With these findings, future organisations can identify factors that could increase employees' engagement for future improvements. Recommendations for future research on this topic include using interviews and a focus group design.
