1 Day Prosci Canada Employee Orientation

Prosci’s Best Practices in Change Management research indicates that a key obstacle to success of major change projects is employee resistance and the ineffective management of the people side of change. Employees resist change when they lack the awareness of why change is happening and what is in it for them? Employees also demonstrate resistance when the uncertainty around change is high, which stems from a lack of involvement in the change process.

Program Overview

Prosci’s Change Management Employee Orientation Program is a 6 – 7 hour workshop designed for frontline employees who are directly impacted by a current change.  Offered as a client on-site program, it introduces employees to key change management concepts, Prosci’s Change Management Process and tools. This enables employees to gain a feeling of control over the change management process and fosters their commitment and alignment to the need for ongoing change.

Specifically, the program enables the employees
• to identify their concerns about the change
• To effectively surface these concerns and,
• To successfully engage their managers and supervisors about their concerns.

By engaging the employees in the above, the program aids the managers and the supervisors with the employee perspective (captured on flipcharts and worksheets during the workshop) and enables them
• To build their awareness of the specific employee barriers to change and
• To effectively facilitate and manage their employees through change.

During the program participants utilize:

• Prosci’s Change Management Process
• The Employee Orientation to Change Workbook and the
• ADKAR® Model

Through series of group discussions and break out exercises employees assess and evaluate past and the current changes to uncover 5 keys to a successful change. They apply the ADKAR® tool to better understand the people side of change process to discover their own barriers or concerns to a current change. They develop action plans regarding how they plan to address their barriers to change and outline steps needed to engage in the current change.

To summarize, the program enables the employees to -

•  Gain a feeling of control over the current change and the change process
