Abstract:Dynamic environments make organisations subject to fast-paced transformations. Consequently, employees need to adapt their behaviour to accommodate the new demands. However, the circumstances that foster change supportive behaviours of the employees are unclear. Therefore, this study investigates to what extent reflection on work task, on social context and on task performance predicts the change supportive behaviours of compliance, cooperation and championing and to what extent gender moderates these relationships. To assess these relationships, Dutch-speaking working professionals (N = 33) responded to an online questionnaire containing items that reflected the mentioned dimensions of reflection and the dimensions of changing supportive behaviours. To analyse the data, a MANOVA analysis was executed. The results showed a negative significant relationship between task performance reflection and championing. Additionally, the results revealed a positive moderation effect of gender on the relationship of work task reflection with compliance and championing. Further research should investigate a possible prediction of other reflection dimensions on behavioural responses to change in organisations and look into internal precursors of change supportive behaviours.
