Workplace Application:
Actively and comprehensively managing change helps position an organization for success in a rapidly evolving environment. 

We are seeing a lot of changes coming in the HR arena. For example, HR leaders and practitioners are faced with increasing pressure to do more with less, including how to increase engagement and reduce turnover, all while modernizing the employee experience. All of these issues require having a strong communication and change management strategy in place for driving awareness and understanding, building buy-in, educating stakeholders and driving desired behavior. This is particularly critical when addressing sensitive topics such as pay frequency changes, compliance / eligibility requirements, time off policies and adherence, FMLA and FLSA changes and the like.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to develop a change management plan.
  • Gain actionable advice on how to build and execute engaging communications.
  • Glean insights from a real-life case study.
  • Learn creative ideas, tips and tricks to support organizational change.
