Introducing new technology should make things easier and more efficient for staff. However, it’s easy to get bogged down with specifications and implementation. The company’s most important asset – people – often get forgotten. So how best to keep the human focus while transforming technology in businesses. Below we discuss practical options to get the whole team involved.
Get your Team Involved
From the offset, announce the new technology and benefits and plan ahead. Often drip-feeding information that a change is happening has a more positive effect, so staff feel empowered and involved.
Professional ongoing training is vital, but often you’ll have some team members that are more tech-savvy than others. Encourage them to become ‘champions’ and support other colleagues. Having a tech-savvy team member can be to the benefit of everyone, especially in busy working environments.
Don’t lose sight of what matters. New systems are only good if they make our working lives easier. The end goal is to make businesses more efficient and for employees and their customers to feel the benefit. Successful implementations must be a win-win for all.
