Abstract

The current research tests the structure of individual change readiness (CR) and explores the relationships between employees' collective identities and individual CR, in the context of Chinese military enterprises which have been implementing The Policy of Military-Civilian Integration. The results of the study 1 gives strong support to the argument that individual CR has two distinct components in terms of cognitive CR and affective CR. In research 2, the survey data were collected from 297 employees. The results of correlation analyses and hierarchical linear model show that civilian identity has positive effect on affective CR, but not on cognitive CR. Higher-hierarchy identity has significant positive effect on both cognitive CR and affective CR.
