Madison Performance Group Advocating for HR Leaders to Own Change Management Function
New York, New York, Apr 03, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
In today's rapidly morphing business environment, Madison Performance Group, a global web-based workforce recognition and employee incentives solution provider, is advocating HR leaders to lead the charge in their organizations' change management initiatives and drive positive outcomes with workforce recognition. Madison today released a Performance Perspective on this topic, titled "Change Management: A New Role for Employee Recognition Programs?"
"Success in today's business climate demands swift strategy changes, but communication missteps and a failure to motivate employees to adapt is causing most change initiatives to fall short and, ultimately, harming employee engagement," said Mike Ryan, Madison Performance Group's Senior Vice President of Client Strategy. "Using reward and recognition programs to enact organizational change gives progressive HR leaders another role at the executive table where they are actively partnering with other business leaders."
Madison recommends five best practices for HR leaders to own the change management function and prove success:
1) Partner with executive peers to identify the financial rational behind the change;
2) Know the goal-point adoption and utilization levels, benchmarks and timeframes;
3) Create a robust communications and reward plan that reinforces the employee's role in making the transition;
4) Depending on the scope of the initiative, communicate the change and adoption plan before it is formally introduced; and
5) Address the personal potential for employees and acknowledge early adopters.
"HR leaders have an opportunity to leverage their employee recognition and rewards programs to ensure change management helps organizations evolve and boost their bottom line," added Ryan.
