abstract
Adaptability is crucial for organizational effectiveness and efficiency in this ever-changing precarious environment. Trainings are among the tools to enhance employees’ adaptability. The purpose of this quantitative study was to investigate the impact of change-oriented trainings on employees’ adaptability objectively (positivist perspective). Trainings related to BPR, BSC, and Kaizen were used to prove the hypothesis. The study followed a Correlational approach. Leaders, core process owners and staffs were included via simple random sampling. One sample t test, correlation and regression were used to analyze data. Accordingly, it was found that trainings can significantly influence employees meaning making ability about changes if properly used, which in turn is fundamental to develop employees’ adaptive behavior and skills. However, trainings were not found contributing to enhance adaptability of employees, because trainings were given indiscriminately and skill gaps among employees were ignored. Therefore, it was reflected that the institution should revisit why and how change-oriented trainings are being used.
