Built co-founder and president Chase Gilbert was recently interviewed for the Lendtech Briefing series put on by Mortgage Cadence. The interview covered a variety of topics, including:
Your company has brand new software ready for implementation, but surprise, surprise your team has met the change with resistance. Creatures of habit, your human employees cannot help but resist change and all of the hard work that goes with it. When it comes to implementing change successfully, commitment is key. Include the following elements in your implementation strategy to get employees as excited about the new software as you are.
When introducing a new software solution to the workplace, providing plenty of resources, training opportunities, and ongoing help to employees is paramount to a successful transition. Staff training will ensure employees feel engaged and included in the process and implementation of new software. Training will also help you fully realize the software's capabilities, and employee input during training will shed light on a plethora of unique scenarios and applications of the new system. Before implementing new software, be sure you have a well-planned training strategy in place.
If introduced to employees in the wrong way, change in the workplace forces employees into a grieving process in which they must learn to let go of their old ways to accept new processes. As it does in personal life, grief in the workplace also comes complete with five stages including denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
The workplace grieving process can be mitigated somewhat by including employees in the conversations which take place around an impending change throughout the process leading up to a decision. Change, however, is difficult for everyone, and the grieving process cannot be completely avoided. If you plan to implement a change, such as new software, to your company, learn to recognize the stages of grief in your staff and take these steps to usher them through the process.
