Facility Managers, Design Professionals, Space Planners and others can serve a key role in building community at work by ensuring that employees are heard throughout the change process. Organization leaders, concerned about “managing expectations”, often wish to limit employee involvement. However, when you invite employee input and facilitate conversations about change before it occurs, you can successfully inform and lead change within your organization, resulting in more engaged employees who are happier with the final change. Bonus for you, the FM professional: this process can make your job easier, lead to fewer change orders, and highlight your role as an organizational leader.
