Change Management

Drive change through people with the right communication and approaches

Because change is constant, organizations need to drive change through people rather than driving people through change. With the right communication and approaches, your employees can withstand drastic or even small organizational changes without a negative impact on business results. Learn about the need for and process of finding “change architects” to facilitate the organization’s movement through a change initiative, using “broadcasters” to communicate the change with stories and data, and having “coaches” to address the personal resistances of change. Accountability and ownership for change are diffused throughout the organization.

We age, settle down, uproot, and move through different phases of our lives, accruing different work and life experiences that shape our perception of the world. And candidly, we have no choice in the matter. We cannot remain static. In business, change defines and drives success, and those organizations unwilling to accept or evolve have found themselves unable to keep up (Blockbuster, Circuit City, Kodak, etc.).

Public-Private Partnerships Gain Ground in Workforce Planning, Development

April 12, 2018 | MaryFran Heinsch | HCI

Our March, 2018 Talent Pulse Research shows that Strategic Workforce Planning (SWP) is key in adapting to change, but businesses are finding that these plans often need to grow beyond their organizations and into the communities around them.
