With the arrival of COVID-19 in early 2020, the number of organizational changes increased dramatically for many employees. This led to a 50% reduction in employee change capacity—meaning employees can absorb less change before becoming fatigued.
The combination of a growing rate of change and a less-change-resilient workforce means leaders are right to rank change fatigue as one of their top two change-related priorities. Tech CEOs looking to alleviate this fatigue must:
- Start their change journey with a clearly defined end state and case for change.
- Document clearly the end state of the change and be clear and to the point about directing the individual path.
- Create feedback mechanisms to monitor and report on change readiness.
