The purpose of this talk is to explore managerial identity regulation in the context of organizational change and collaboration between two public services – the Police and Fire and Rescue Service.

I am what I think you think I am’.

What is this relationship between social and self that defines two distinct images, how do employees see the organisation and how do they believe this is viewed from the outside?

How does organizational change impact the self image of your employees?

Work identity describes the activities undertaken by individuals to make sense of themselves and their organization. Identity is of upmost importance to people and when organizational change occurs to alter that identity, tensions can arise.
