The Case for Change
Embrace change--transition to a whole new way of working.
Today’s collaboration technology offers us all a whole new way to work—one that challenges us to rethink centuries-old ideas about what work is, where it gets done, and how it is measured. Technology and other forces are already changing how we work. But in order to maximize the potential of new ways of working, we must fundamentally change how we think about work and adopt new behaviors that fully leverage its potential.
While senior leaders are typically eager to deploy workplace practices that enhance organizational performance, resistance from middle managers and other employees is common. The key to overcoming that resistance—something e-Work.com has learned from decades of experience—is to first, make sure all stakeholders understand “the why” or “what’s in it for them,” and second, to address their fear of the unknown.
That’s why we created “The Case for Change” overview. Working with our research partner, Global Workplace Analytics, we’ve created a business case for workplace mobility and framed it from the three different perspectives of executives, managers, and staff.
Backed up by solid research this twenty-minute course will leave its participants with:
- A fact-based business case that demonstrates the urgent need for new workplace strategies and practices
- A clear vision of where and how they will work in the envisioned future
- Straight answers to their most common questions
- A clear understanding of what’s in it for them
- The realization that leadership is empathic to their concerns and is committed to making the change as easy as possible
- Action steps that will help them play a role in the change
