Organizational change is one of the important things that must be considered in the work environment. The thing that most influences the effectiveness of implementing change in the organization is the readiness of individuals to change. Perceptions of organizational support are factors that can increase readiness to change. Therefore, this study aims to determine the effect of perceived organizational support on the readiness to change of employees at the Chancellor Bureau, University of North Sumatra. The measurement tools of this research are the scale of readiness to change and the scale of perceived organizational support. This research was conducted on 130 employees at the North Sumatra Chancellor's Bureau. The results showed that there was a positive influence on the perception of organizational support together on the readiness to change among employees at the Chancellor Bureau, University of North Sumatra. The coefficient of determination (R) of perceived organizational support is able to explain the variable readiness to change in employees at the Chancellor's Bureau at the University of North Sumatra by 37.4% and the remaining 62.6% is explained by other independent variables that have not been studied.
