Work Practice Change

People draw considerable security from what’s familiar to them. When the workplace is disrupted, each individual takes it personally. Whether you are eliminating private spaces, introducing mobility, adopting disruptive technology, moving, merging two enterprises – it is essential that each individual can see a clear, non-threatening perception of their new work environment. They need to clearly see how the change will benefit them, then learn ways to quickly become comfortable, secure and productive in that change.

Each Person Must Own the Change

   . . . then Learn How to Practice the Change

Through the scalable Work Practice Change eLearning Solution, a cultural shift for 600 or 60,000 employees can now happen in weeks, not months or years. Each individual becomes a part of the change by adopting a fresh personal perspective, buying into the change, learning new skills and processes, then applying them along with their team as new behaviors for everyday use. When integrated with your program communication plan, this phased learning process enables each individual to quickly become an active part of the solution simultaneously with all others, pulling their weight for change, contributing to overall program success, and feeling good about it.

“If you don’t set employee expectations, they will probably make it up…and their expectations will be different than yours.” – Michael Dziak, COO
