How To Change

HRMatrix has had the wonderful pleasure of providing a range of tactics to incite change. We have discussed a variety of choices to inspire different approaches on conflict resolution, social mitigation, talent retention, recognition, and flextime. This is all step two in the process of change, so HRMatrix wants to finally go over step one. 

It’s the most overlooked, because we are in the midst of an ambitious era, and we want to jump into success without precaution. Hold on to that vigor, it’s a good thing, but let’s review the preparational values to increase the longevity and management qualities of the change you choose to bring into the workplace!

Step one is basically the comprehension of cost and benefit of the change you want. It’s all about preparing, because you will essentially be held accountable for what is to transpire on the basis of your decisions. 

  • Plan the NEW

  • Break Down Goals

  • Give Recognition

  • Expect Struggle

  • Take Suggestions


  1. Plan The New

Change is a very important quality, because it enhances mental health, and provides a refreshing environment which will result in motivated efforts. It is an opportunity for your business/company to expand, innovate, and attain new levels of prosperity. You might want to keep in mind that if you strive to be different to solely be different is erroneous and your attempts will appear artificial. 

Ponder over your intentions. Who are you trying to benefit? What do you want out of this? This will help you execute your goals with wholeheartedness. People can see right through superficiality, so if you want to really sell your game plan, you have to give it reason.

List objectives, break down your mission, and have a recovery plan if your attempt takes an unproductive turn for the worst. You cannot throw an objective in the air and expect your employees to immediately put this into motion. The plan of change is your responsibility, so focus on the areas of the business that will receive impact. 


  1. Break Down Those Goals

Your employees have a better grasp if you parcel those goals out into smaller portions. This makes it easier to digest as these goals are more achievable and not some hopeful dream to be better and do better. Employees need to have a solid idea of how their department will now function and what is expected out of them. 

Discuss the end goal, discuss the future of your newly introduced concept of change. You are thinking on the behalf of each department, so that when you describe their updated criteria, they will be able to execute accordingly.


  1. Provide Recognition for Previous Effort

This is indeed vital, because some of these practices are about to be thrown out the window. There is a high chance your certain departments, certain employees might feel underappreciated. Some might assume that their former labor did not meet the mark and that is why you are suggesting a new approach. Celebrate their success, and make sure to directly provide recognition. Underappreciation or the feeling of might hinder the motivation needed to embrace change. 


  1. Prepare Them for Potential Struggle

Nothing is perfect, and that is why you have to prepare your employees’s mindsets for the worst. It could happen, some attempts are not always the most successful, and that’s okay. It shouldn’t stop you, it should just prepare you. Articulate the certain struggles each department might face, and remind them of your support and that you will be considerate, because change is not easy to adjust to. 


  1. Take Suggestions

Suggestions are critical, because again, no idea is perfect, but we try to perfect them. Build your network, find professionals at your position and hold meetings to discuss opinions and thoughts regarding your plan. Even take suggestions from your colleagues and employees. This will make your staff feel important, which will create more genuine contributions. 



HRMatrix wants the best for you, and that’s why we are here to prepare you and have you prepare your employees for what’s to come next, because change is inevitable! Create strong prospects, execute thoroughly, communicate, and make sure to listen too.
