5 reasons employees resist change

Change is always hard. Whether you’re a fledgling employee who has just mastered their new employers’ policies, or an old hand who has spent years following the same (seemingly) tried and true daily routine, change means going back to the drawing board, opening yourself up to vulnerability and potentially trying something that no one is too sure will actually work.

Yet change is an essential part of business; the innumerable number of corporate juggernauts who at one time dominated their market, but refused to embrace change when it became a necessity such as AOL, Polaroid and Blackberry, to name a few, should serve as a constant warning for all companies to take a stance of constant diligence and openness to the unstoppable tide of progress.
