Abstract for Conference Committee Consideration
Today change is not just a buzz word. It is a constant!

Employers and employees have to adapt or get left behind. Digitisation has sped this up exponentially in all industries. The further world of work is placing much pressure on businesses and their people due to rapid changes. Changes in their products/services, their people, their processes.

Employees feel that as soon as they have made one or other change the next is on their heels again. How do employees cope or keep up? How resilient are we as individuals and teams to manage these changes? How to businesses prepare their people foe these changes. How do they do this and take their teams with them? This a reality our market place is facing.

This is an ideal opportunity for EAP’s to help leadership empower and teach employees coping skills while still achieving business goals.

With so much technology changes in our companies their workforce will be requiring people that are robust and can keep up with the changes that see change as an opportunity to innovate and grow. All of this speaks to building GRIT and self-leadership within their workforce. Also training managers on EQ and how to harness the team strengths to achieve outcomes. It requires a different way of working. Some environments call it and agile work environment. Other call it evolving environments.

Are you as EAP in your company planning for this and working with your leadership to navigate the storms ahead?

We need to look at Change at an individual, team and organisation level.
