Abstract (type = abstract)
This exploratory study was designed to look at the range of possible employee responses to company growth and change utilizing one growing company as a case study. The study utilized theory founded in Barry Oshry’s Power Labs to examine differences in the hierarchical levels (Tops, Middles and Bottoms). The study also utilized Self Determination Theory’s (SDT) tenants of autonomy, connectedness and relatedness to evaluate responses from participants about levels of stress due to change. 22 volunteers among three hierarchical levels from Company X were interviewed and asked to respond to questions about their own experience with the growth and change they were witnessing in their daily lives at work. Responses were reviewed for recurrent themes and several raters also coded the responses for SDT variables and stress levels which were then analyzed using simple correlations. Results revealed that Company X employees do not strictly follow Barry Oshry’s Power Labs experiments; Tops, Middles and Bottoms all varied from the theory’s suggested patterns. In the correlations between SDT variables and stress, relatedness was the only variable found with a statistically significant negative correlation. Potentially confounding the results of this study was the fact that the researcher was an employee of Company X at the time of the study.
