The 3 keys to helping employees deal with change

Change isn’t fun for everyone. Some people like things the way they were. They like the routine. Sometimes changes are for the better, but it doesn’t always work out that way. To get everyone on board when things are changing, here are three keys for helping employees adjust…

Communication: Good communication is probably THE key to helping employees deal with change. It is important to keep your team informed about what changes are happening, why they are happening, and how they will be affected by them. Make sure that employees have access to information, and that they have an opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback from you.

Training: Providing training to employees can help them adapt to changes in their roles or processes. This could include training on new software or tools, or training on new policies or procedures. Training should be tailored to the specific needs of each employee, and should be designed to help them feel confident and capable if they find themselves in a new role.

Support: Change can be stressful for employees, so it is important to provide support to help them deal with the emotional impact of change. This could include offering flexible work arrangements to help employees manage their workload, or creating a supportive environment where employees feel comfortable discussing questions and concerns. Showing empathy and understanding can go a long way to help employees adjust to change.
