A successful change management program not only removes the fear of change, but also ignites an excitement and enthusiasm for change within the workplace and for all employees. How do you successfully manifest culture change when some of the people you employ are under going their own change revolution?
The challenge around change management increases as the cultural divide across age groups widen.
Younger members of the team may enter the workforce with an attitude of entitlement and with a knowledge of their worth that far exceeds their professional predecessors. Millenniums now demand to be involved in decision making and are not afraid to display their ’tats’ and rock platinum pink hair in the boardroom during the process.
Whereas, typically, older employees have a wealth of knowledge but may not be quite so vocal in providing much needed and valued input. Baby Boomers have experience hard gotten by and with battle scars to prove it, making them a gold mine when it comes to company knowledge, as well as what works and what doesn’t.
Your next change management program needs to reach each and every team member, ensuring you leave no one person behind as you navigate the rocky seas of change. There are many different ways to engage with the workforce, technology is just one of them. But when the average person is spending approximately 2.5 hours a day on their mobile device, a corporate mobile app to capture levels of engagement has to be in your toolbox.
The Engage approach to change and transformation
The Engage approach for Change Management is an interactive and iterative process that draws in and involves the workforce throughout the entire change process, using the Engage app to deliver messages and measure how well they are received, understood and retained.
It’s well known a good change management program consists of collaboration at all levels, bottom-up, peer to peer and top-down communications and a regular drip-feed of the messages and behaviours you want to instil.
By involving the workforce throughout the process your change management program will be stronger and quicker to implement.
The Engage software and mobile app has a number of features to help you achieve transformation in the workplace with unique methods to connect the leadership team with the workforce no matter how diverse and geographically spread.
The strength of Engage is in its simplistic design and intuitive user interface which makes for an instant great user experience. All features are at the touch of a button, making it easy for employees to share their views, anonymously if desired, and for the leadership to receive powerful insights directly from the coalface.
