Constant change is the new business normal and this means that we need to be prepared to deal with it all the time. Change management can be a complex process and therefore requires attention from employees of all levels in the organization. It is key for an HR professional to assess the human impact of change by finding ways to encourage a smooth transition to new workplace responsibilities, and to successfully implement new processes while minimizing negative outcomes.

From this event you will benefit from experts who will guide you through the change management process in attempts to minimize both short and long-term disruption to make workplace transitions as seamless as possible. Lets learn together, while apart at our upcoming symposium.
