If you’ve been working in business for a long time you may be familiar with the term “Business Change” and as a consequence you’ll most likely be aware of the issues it can cause in staff retention, engagement and productivity and how much of a headache it can bring to your team.

We’ve recently been working with Benjamin Black, Chartered MCIPD, to produce our March whitepaper that discusses the best practices in maintaining employee engagement during major business change; citing multiple case studies he discusses the importance of “The Three Cs” during a business change process, which are Certainty, Communication and Consistency. We won’t even be scratching the surface of all the brilliant things Benjamin has to say during this post, so please take advantage of your early access to this whitepaper right here!

One of the most important things to keep intact now more than ever is your level of employee engagement across the company. It’s very easy for your workforce to feel an extra weight on their shoulders when you commence major business transformation and it can cause a massive disrupt to their work life; if effective communication is not maintained during these stages your employees can feel frustrated, burnt out and left in the dark. This brings a great risk to your business as these employees are more likely to have a dip in productivity and potentially move on from your company. We go in to much more detail about this crucial issue in our March whitepaper, which can be downloaded for free here!

Keep Calm and Collected

During times of major change it’s absolutely paramount that you keep calm and collected if things go wrong. This is not only for the benefit of your own well-being, but the well-being of your entire workforce. It doesn’t matter what position you hold in the company, if you start panicking and become noticeably frustrated in the transformation process there is a very high chance that you will trigger a chain reaction; this will causes a massive dip in productivity and bring unnecessary stress to your co-workers, ultimately extending the amount of time taken to complete the overall process.
