We are all creatures of habit, we like to be able to predict what will happen and when,
we like routine as it makes us feel
comfortable knowing that at set times we do set things.
However that's not always possible in the workplace, companies have to change and evolve as their customers needs change. Whether it be new manufacturing equipment to be used or different procedures for new services that are to be introduced.
So change is inevitable. Preparing your workforce for those changes is an important part of making the changes easy.
It is much easier to make changes in a smaller company than a larger one, simply the amount of people that need to be advised can be an issue, getting the right information to the right people to make the changes you need can seem daunting at times.
Assessments on how things are done right now, consultation papers on what needs to change, endless meetings before you even get to implement those changes.
What can be overlooked amongst all of this planning is how it is going to affect your workforce, after all they will be the ones who actually do the work.
