Follow These Three Steps to Help Your Employees More Readily Embrace Change in the Workplace
Posted on September 25, 2020
Technology moves so fast that as soon as a person gets used to one thing, there is often another to learn. With employees who are constantly asked to do it all, it can be challenging to convince them to embrace change in the workplace – especially when it involves new risk mitigation options. Get a few ideas on how you can help motivate them, then contact Fund Control at 800-625-5972 to learn more about the benefits of fund control software.
- Outline the Benefits
- Identify the People Who Will Embrace the New Technology
- Keep Training Them
First and foremost, you need to make sure that your employees know how the change will benefit them. If they feel that it only benefits “the boss,” they are less likely to embrace it. If you tell them that they have to upgrade to a new system and do not explain what the advantages are, they have no reason to be excited about it. Talk about the long-term benefit so that they understand the short-term pain of learning something new will be worth it.
While you know that some employees are going to be hesitant to embrace the new technology, you also know that some will be excited to try it out. Identify the latter. Train them first so that they will be motivated and excited – which they can then share with their co-workers. It is not at all uncommon for someone to doubt how useful something is until they see someone else benefit from it.
Do not assume that you can sit down, show your employees the new software, and be done with it. You should start by giving them the basics so that they can get in there and get started. As the days and weeks go on, they are more likely to return to their old technologies unless they are constantly challenged and trained on advanced features. Remember, the more they get from our software, the more likely they are to use it.
As mentioned above, we suggest starting with employees who are tech-savvy and who you know are going to accept change more readily. Set up a few employees for advanced training so that they can be the one-stop answering station and so that they can motivate their co-workers to find other solutions.
