amendment

Here is my best explanation:

'change' is the definition.
(amendment is a kind of change)

'get better workers in a time leading' is the wordplay.
'get better' becomes 'mend' ('mend' can be a synonym of 'get better'**).
'workers' becomes 'men' (man is a kind of worker).
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'leading' indicates taking the first letters.
The initial letter of 'time' is 't'.
'mend'+'men'='mendmen'
'a'+'t'='at'
'mendmen' placed into 'at' is 'AMENDMENT'.

'to' is the link.
