The new condition and the changes in the working environment due to the long duration of the pandemic caused substantial insecurity among the employees. Employees and managers face difficult challenges in performing their job responsibilities. This paper aims to point out the role of the management in gathering the preconditions for the implementation of the organizational changes as well as timely recognition and detection of the employee’s necessities for the introduction of the changes. The results of the research confirm the hypothesis that the impact of the COVID-19 caused the implementation of these organizational changes, which are dependent on accomplishing the preconditions for the introduction of organizational changes.

Keywords – COVID-19, organizational changes, management, employees, small enterprises.
