Is It Time For Cultural Change?
Many organizations are resistant to change because they assume it’s too costly. In reality, not launching a cultural transformation training strategy can hurt your bottom line, as every business needs to venture into new markets and adapt its company culture to achieve long-term success. This eBook features all the steps involved, from making a successful business case to choosing the right tech tools. But first, let’s take a closer look at the common myths and misconceptions every enterprise should debunk today.
Cultural Change Myths And Misconceptions
Many organizations make the mistake of keeping corporate change behind closed doors until it’s time to launch the program. With the exceptions of monetary gifts and all-inclusive vacations, nobody likes surprises, particularly when they involve corporate shake-ups that cause undue stress. As such, you need to include your employees from the very beginning and keep everything transparent. For instance, host a kick-off meeting to let them know about upcoming changes and the new role they’ll play in the organization. You should also walk them through the entire process so that they know what to expect and when to expect it. Let’s look at some other common myths and misconceptions regarding cultural transformation training.
It Needs To Stay In-House
Some organizations simply don’t outsource because they assume that only their team knows company values. As such, everything needs to stay in-house. The issue is that eLearning vendors bring unique expertise. They’ve been there, done that because they have worked with other companies in your industry. Therefore, they can help you cut costs and reduce risks with custom or pre-built options, as well as lighten the workload for your L&D team. That said, you need to find an eLearning company that understands your brand and adapts to your needs. For instance, every activity reflects your image and messaging.
Culture Change Is Always Organization-Wide
Another common misconception is that culture change must be company-wide. However, it might just involve a single department or employee group, or even a specific location. For instance, you overhaul customer service practices and values for your front-end team or changes only pertain to external partners. On the other hand, you do need to account for transformations that impact other aspects of your organization. As an example, new protocols or team leadership in your HR department affect every employee since the HR staff is in charge of policy development and enforcement.
Does Not Apply To External Partner Training
External partners, such a sales channels and call center employees, are often “out of sight, out of mind.” However, they still need just as much culture change training as your in-house team. They represent your brand, which means they require continual support, as well as live events and certification paths that help them align with new values and policies.
