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 who are 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. Learn what the ideal group size is for these types of conversations, the best way to respond to resistance about change, and the best time to invite input into the process. A bonus for the FM professional: this process can make your job easier, lead to fewer change orders and highlight your role as an organizational leader.
