Abstract

The study examines the level of acceptance of organizational change among workers and identifies factors that may impede the effective implementation of change among the manufacturing companies in Nigeria engaging the unilever Nigeria Plc as a case study. Utilizing data collected from a randomly selected sample of 720 senior/management staff and junior/non-managerial staff, regression analysis was performed to identify the determinants of acceptance of change among employees at the Unilever Nigeria Pic, Lagos, Nigeria. The results show some levels of employee acceptance of innovations and reveal that of the two categories of employees analyzed, non-managerial staff were more amenable to change. This study suggests that a more participative approach to the management of change process must be put in place to guarantee the acceptance of change in the manufacturing organizations in Nigeria
