Great businesses are always on the lookout for ways to automate, increase employee engagement, and streamline processes. From employee payroll to time and attendance solutions, HCM systems help to reduce manual effort and optimize workforce performance. Unfortunately, even the most efficient HCM implementations can fall short if employees are resistant to new processes and technology. When enterprise-wide changes occur, it’s critical to develop an organization change management plan that prepares end users to help readily adopt and embrace the change.

2) Ensure executive alignment across your project

3) Prepare organizational impact assessments

4) Build out a multi-channel communication plan
