Prof Neerpal Rathi co-authored a paper titled ‘Determinants of Positive Mental Health During Organizational Change: Role of Continuous Learning, Mindfulness, and Change-efficacy", which was published in the journal Foresight. By integrating job demands-resource (JD-R) theory and organizational change approach, their study investigated the determinants of positive mental health (PMH) of employees experiencing unpredictable organizational change (i.e. transition from physical work to remote work and other associated changes during the Covid-19 pandemic). The paper aims to examine the direct and indirect effects of continuous learning (CL) and mindfulness (MF) on PMH of employees via their perceived change-efficacy (CE). The study is one of its kind which examines the antecedents of employees’ mental health during organizational change while examining the mediating role of their CE. The findings contribute substantially to the literature of organizational change and JD-R theory by integrating and extending it to organizational change context.
