Change is constant, you can’t escape it so therefore businesses must have strategic plans in place to manage change or, face resistance, lower productivity, higher staff turnover and so on. Change within your organisation may require redefining roles and responsibilities, changing processes or premises and systems, or adapting service levels to continue to meet customer demands.
Many employees will resist change by nature, the biggest reason why they may do so is due to poor management of change. Other reasons employees become disruptive during organisational change is through fear of losing their job, uncertainty, loss of control, lack of reward and office politics. All of these factors can be minimised with an effective change management strategy.
These effects can be widespread and may affect the morale of your staff if they are not addressed in a timely manner. This can lead to a reduced level of efficiency and output among staff, which can affect the company’s bottom line.
You can avoid much disruption by creating a work environment in which employees feel as if they have the power to initiate change when necessary, this can also help to improve your work culture.
All companies are constantly changing and therefore change management is essential in helping your employees’ transition from the current situation to the desired one. It involves tools, skills and best practices to avoid cost and disruption.
