    Change is never an easy process. For years, researchers and theorists have attempted to develop frameworks for change to help individuals accept the need for change. Consider the scenario below about change in a large organization. Then, answer the associated questions related to organizational change.

    Due to the impact of COVID-19, a large manufacturing company recognizes that organizational culture changes are necessary. Furthermore, process-related changes must occur. The organization has experienced a decline in sales from early 2020 to present and recognizes that if changes are not made, many issues may arise. Reham, the CEO of the company, recognizes that organizational changes are needed.

    Reham has proposed that the company reduce the size of the workforce by 20% until sales increase. The organization currently employs many full-time manufacturing employees, but only employs a handful of office workers. To further market the products provided by the company, many office workers are working 10-20 hours of overtime, per week, to assist with marketing efforts. Needless to say, office personnel are very overwhelmed with tasks and responsibilities.

    At a three-hour meeting, Reham noted that a 20% reduction among manufacturing employees would be made within the next month. She then went on to state that three new positions would be added to the home office to ensure that the workload was not as intense for office personnel.

    During the meeting, many individuals recognized Reham’s point and said that they would support her decision to make these workforce changes. Unfortunately, Reham’s colleague, Alan (the Director of Manufacturing), became furious about this change and mentioned that he did not understand why Reham was trying to ruin the company’s culture.

    Based on the scenario above, answer the following questions:

    Why do you believe that Alan is having a difficult time recognizing the change proposed by Reham?

    What are the implications associated with Alan, the Director of Manufacturing, not supporting this change initiative?

    1. Although Reham is the CEO, and has ultimate authority, how might obtaining additional feedback from other organizational leaders assist Alan in further understanding the rationale for this change?
    2. Before Reham pushes this change forward, what short-term and long-term impacts should she consider?

    Occupational health and safety is gaining increasing importance in the GCC countries, including Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia, the Ministry of Labor and Social Development recently introduced a new resolution that seeks to give employers a practical framework for managing occupational disorders and maintaining health and safety in the workplace.
    the most common occupational disorders in Saudi Arabia
    Cancer
    exposure to carcinogenic substances at work may cause cancer. In the manufacturing sector, those who work in the plastic industry may easily develop cancerious cells on skin or internal border organs because of the constant exposure to dangerous chemicals. Those in the petrochemical industry may also face the same problems because of long hours breathing contaminated air.
    Coronary diseases
    employees who work in highly stressful environments are likely to develop coronary diseases. Problems as high blood pressure are common among those whose work are very demanding or those who are constantly abused by the superiors. They always have the pressure to meet specific targets or to avoid rebuke from superiors. When an employee is exposed to contaminants at work through the skin, inhalation, or ingestion, the poison may find its way to the blood and consequently to the heart. Depending on the nature of the poison, the heart may be affected in various ways.
    Reproductive disorders
    Studies suggest that reproductive disorders are sometimes associated with one’s occupation. Men who spend most of their time seated in environments with relatively high temperatures such as drivers and machine.

    We find in the occupational turmoil that occurs in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, it is any event or vegetable that takes place inside the work station. This turmoil makes the existing situation worse. This happens in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, since it bears a greeting structure and has an industrial development, so it is likely that the most common diseases and injuries that appear in the Kingdom are occupational asthma. As well as chronic pulmonary embolism, and with them, disorders of the occupational musculoskeletal system.

    Let’s get to know each disease in some detail. Occupational asthma affects the lungs, and the patient shows symptoms of wheezing, tightness in the chest and coughing.

    As for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, the patient suffers from shortness of breath because it blocks the airway. It is caused by dust gases. As for occupational dermatitis, it occurs when exposed to chemicals and causes skin cancer and some infections. Finally, occupational musculoskeletal disorders are caused by the body’s exposure to vibration, force, or repetitive movement over a long period. This is like shoulder disorder and tendonitis in the wrist.

    In order to get to the treatment of these disturbances, workers must be educated, provided with health information, and provide both ventilation and cleanliness in the site.
