Changing Mindsets, Changing Outcomes: 5 Proven ways to get employees to adopt the change

In our third instalment of our blog series on behavioural change in organizational transformation. In this edition, we focus on the crucial step of empowering employees to act differently and adopt the desired behaviours. As change managers, we understand that successful transformation hinges on the active participation and commitment of employees. In this blog, we present actionable tactics that will accelerate adoption and behavior change, creating a cohesive and motivated workforce ready to embrace the new direction.

1. Practical simulation workshops or demos

At No Gaps, we recommend practical simulation workshops or demos as powerful tools to drive behaviour change. While we may not directly conduct these sessions, we facilitate the planning and coordinate communications about them. Our expertise comes into play when drafting the materials needed for these workshops, ensuring they align with the change objectives and resonate with employees. Through hands-on experiences and real-life scenarios, employees gain a deeper understanding of the desired behaviours, paving the way for successful adoption.

2. Instructional training with impact

Instructional training plays a pivotal role in transforming behaviour, and at No Gaps, we excel in creating effective training plans and materials. While we may not deliver the training ourselves, we collaborate with your team to design engaging and impactful training sessions. From interactive e-learning modules to comprehensive classroom sessions, we ensure that the training aligns with the change vision and equips employees with the necessary skills to thrive in the new environment.

3. Creating incentives for positive change

Incentives can be potent catalysts for behaviour change. As change managers, we work with your organization to develop incentive programs that encourage and reward employees for embracing the desired behaviours. Whether through recognition programs, performance-based bonuses, or other creative incentives, we foster a culture where positive change is celebrated and reinforced.

4. Encouraging accessible opportunities for employee contributions

We believe that involving employees in the change process fosters a sense of ownership and commitment. To empower your workforce, we encourage accessible opportunities for them to contribute to the change project. Through feedback mechanisms, idea-sharing platforms, and open forums, employees become active participants in shaping the transformation, making it more meaningful and relevant to them.

5. Translating new behavioural aspects into HR instruments

For true behaviour change to take root, it must be embedded in HR instruments. At No Gaps, we collaborate with your HR team to translate the new behavioural aspects and culture into HR instruments, such as performance evaluations, competency frameworks, and employee development plans. This integration ensures that the desired behaviours are reinforced consistently throughout the employee lifecycle.
