Abstract: This paper examines how an organisational justice framework can be used to explore employees' perceptions of trust during a period of strategic change in a privately-owned media organisation based in Cyprus. A multiple-case study research design was used and data were collected through multiple sources, including in-depth individual interviews and subject matter expert reviews and reflections. Relying on in-depth case study data from eight non-managerial employees, selected through purposive sampling, the paper conceptualises employees' perceptions of trust during a period of strategic change in a media organisation, using an organisational justice framework, and identifies several important challenges to overcome to enable organisations to build more effective strategies. The results of this study contribute to a richer understanding of employees' perceptions of trust, using an organisational justice framework within a media organisation in Cyprus. Following, the study contributes to existing knowledge regarding the management of change within the organisational justice literature.
