Changing People In Your Organization Can Be Difficult But Rewarding
September 25, 2012 1 Comment
When we focus on change in the workplace many times we focus on adding new products, updating procedures or customer specifications. These are often difficult for employees to cope with especially if it impacts organizational culture. While these items are difficult to implement at the outset, they are typically adopted and become routine fairly quickly.
While systems, policies and procedures can cause disruptions in the workplace, changing people can be harder to deal with then any of those issues. Recently at our local location we had a few key people leave the business. They were well liked and highly skilled personnel that drove some of our key systems. We will always appreciate what these people did for us but we must not dwell to long on what used to be. What we must do is develop and work with the new talented people we hired that can provide us with a great opportunity. Hiring correctly means that your new people can add to what was already developed increasing your long term viability. Building on the systems that are in the organization with their past experience should help create improvements in their department and perhaps other areas of the company.
The transition from hiring to efficiency will not be easy but here are some articles that will help your company cope.

Aside from the good employees that have left here, I have also had some of my friends and colleagues leave from other business units. I want to wish them all well in their new ventures and hope that experiences that they gained from us will help them and their new companies succeed.
For those who have joined our organization I say welcome and we hope that we can enhance your experience as much as you can help grow our business.
