From the Paper:

"A new component of the strategic human resource management is that of helping the employees cope with organizational change. This change can occur in numerous forms and can relate to several features of the business operations conducted by the organization. For instance, change occurs when the company undergoes a merger or an acquisition. The leadership of the company is prone to change and employees must be prepared to cope with it. What will this change mean to them? Maybe it will bring about new tasks, new colleagues, new responsibilities or new remuneration systems. Whichever the case, they must be prepared. Also, a change affecting the employees is given by the financial difficulties faced by the organization, when employees might themselves be subjected to repercussions, such as downsizing, delays in getting their salaries or reduced benefits. Finally, change can affect employees in the form of new internal policies which implement new codes of conduct."
