Let’s face it, change is inevitable. Whether it’s technology, organisational structures, people or process, change is now a constant reality for all businesses.
Government research shows that most organisations undergo major change about once every three years. In this year alone, the continued uncertainty around Brexit has seen a number of companies to consider relocating their operations. Technology trends are influencing businesses to do things differently. And with 2018 just around the corner, you might be gearing up to take your team in a new direction to stay relevant and competitive. Change in business is never easy, but there are ways to make that journey easier and deliver a successful outcome.
Time for a change?
At Southerly, we believe that internal communication is the key to success during times of change. If you peruse our blog, you’ll see we’ve explored the most effective ways to share messages to your employees – from the quality of your internal newsletters to using social media if you’re working on a budget. But whatever tactics you choose, it all starts with planning – and a strong communications strategy will ensure that change is communicated to the right people, in the right way, at the right time.
On 6th December, we hosted a webinar on how good communication can get your teams through the challenging times of change. Hosted by our Head of Content and Strategy Laura Barlow, the session covered:
- The rise of change and its impact on organisations
- The human response to the change cycle
- Our recommended steps to run an effective change communication plan
- Tips on how to measure success.
