Workshop B: Navigating the Human Struggle of Change - Gagen MacDonald
Virtually every organization is either undergoing or planning some type of transformation. According to CEB / Gartner, the average enterprise has undergone five major changes in the last three years – a rate leaders expect to rise. Yet statistically, roughly half of all change initiatives fail – not because of lack of planning, but because of a tendency to underestimate the human struggle of change.

Discover the three things that change everything, and how HR and communications teams can activate them to achieve meaningful business outcomes, including:

  • Overcoming the pervasiveness of change and resulting change fatigue
  • Understanding the human struggle and why it matters
  • Identifying the three things that change everything and activating them in your organization

Building an Internal Communications and Employee Engagement Strategy to Help a Start-up, Grow up - Blend
Preparing for a year of rapid growth from 170 employees to more than 300 employees, Blend invested in Internal Communications and Employee Experience to support the growth. By first assessing the needs of the company it was discovered that the overarching goal was to drive engagement, productivity and connection. These were areas that Blend hadn’t focused on yet, so Blend addressed them through the lenses of effective communication, educating its workforce, trust in leadership and building an engaged culture.

Learn how to enhance the employee experience during a period of rapid growth, including how to:

  • Create one team with the same goals (everyone who touched the employee experience was on the same team – internal comms, employee experience, facilities)
  • Develop and implement a CEO Engagement Strategy
  • Roll out a scalable monthly all-hands (instead of a weekly Engineering-focused stand-up)
  • Create a recognition program (top-down and peer-to-peer)
  • Measure employee satisfaction (through bi-weekly engagement pulse surveys)
