This study seeks to explore how perceived motivational climate at work may influence employees’ attitudes to change, and further, whether employees’ mindset mediates this relationship. According to the results, the proposed research model is only partly supported. The study relies on cross-lagged data gathered from 1104 employees working within the financial sector. The results indicated a positive relationship between perceived mastery climate and employees’ attitudes to change, while a perceived performance climate was negatively associated with attitudes to change. Further, employees’ growth mindset were also found to be positively related to their attitudes to change. However, the study did not reveal any supporting evidence for a mediating role of mindset. Due to the findings, the study suggests organizations to facilitate mastery climate and growth mindset to improve employee’s attitudes to change.
