At a time when many workplaces and work practises have been radically changed by transformation, it can be easy to forget why: for the benefit of your people. At any moment of disruption, there can be difficulties. Employees many feel sidelined by change and employers can lose sight of why they're changing. As a result, the business can lose out.
Yet, this is not why change occurs. Often, it is to empower and engage employees so the business can become a high-performance organisation. When tweaks, or wholesale modification, is made to organisational design, communication practises, company culture, purpose, and even the profile of the people you want to hire, it is with better business function in mind.
To ensure that people are at the centre of any workplace revolution, it's time for HR to take the lead in empowering their people so they can drive better business performance.
