The typical organization today has undertaken five major organization-wide changes in the past three years, and nearly 75% of organizations expect to multiply the types of major change initiatives they will undertake in the next three years. Sixty-six percent of change success factors relate to talent.
HR has to ensure that employees are motivated to undertake the change and participate in the change management program. For this to happen, they need to recruit the right people who can think out of the box and can bring a fresh perspective to the table. Once the right people are recruited, they need to be encouraged and mentored so that they act as “change agents”. This is the key element of a successful change management strategy and this is where the HR department has a stellar role to play in the organizations success.
