Course Overview

Guide people through change to accelerate business success
To remain competitive, organizations need to change. And people need to change with them. That means HR is a critical component to any successful change effort.
Coping with Change
Organizations that do not embrace change risk losing relevance, market share, and long-term viability. Yet, perpetually modifying strategies, processes, and/or policies comes at a cost — change fatigue. Constant disruptions in the status quo can contribute to decreased engagement and productivity, and uncertainty. Most organizations turn to HR to help support and manage change, no matter the size or complexity involved. They know people are the key to success, and change is hard for most. In fact, more than 80% of professionals agree their organizations are in a constant state of change, but only 29% say major change initiatives are well-received.
The Role of HR in Change Management
As an HR professional, you must guide individuals and teams through change in a way that supports the strategic partnership between HR and the business and engages and inspires key stakeholders. HCI’s newest two-day certification program is designed to build the skills necessary to align change initiatives with business strategy, communicate effectively, address resistance, and encourage sustainability.

Explain HR’s role in change management
Describe how the partnership between business and HR can lead to success
Distinguish among the three different roles that HR can play and when each is necessary
