HOW DO YOU OVERCOME THE NATURAL RESISTANCE TO WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT CHANGE

 

The past year has shown us the importance of change management, yet stakeholders often fear that change will impact their ability to access key skills.

We surveyed a large number of procurement and HR professionals across multiple sectors about their contingent workforce programmes and 70% admitted they hadn’t made the progress they had expected to. The main reason? Insufficient change management and lack of stakeholder buy in.

We believe this is a topic that we shouldn’t be afraid of tackling.

Ruth Munday, EMEA Head of Sales & Solutions at Hays Talent Solutions and Alex Fraser, Group Head of Change at Hays are discussing:

  • How to assess the impact of change on different stakeholder groups (Primary vs. Secondary)
  • Identifying and addressing the natural resistance to workforce management change with stakeholders who feel the change will impact their ability to access key skills
  • Where organisational change has succeeded and how

Ruth’s role involves consulting with clients across Europe and designing workforce management solutions that reflect their organisational complexity and meets future needs, drawing on her previous life as an executive search consultant where she helped build new leadership teams for organisations. She commissioned the Human Capital Catalyst survey after observing that so many companies were underestimating the depth and breadth of change when putting an MSP in place and that this was having a negative impact on the benefits realised from their programmes.
