People, in general, are afraid of change and digital technology seems to be at the top of the “fear factor” list. When people are afraid, it stops them in their tracks, slowing progress and ultimately lowering productivity. You know the old saying…time is money. As a manager or leader within your company, how can you help technology resistant team members embrace technology?
Below are our PEAK Performance tips to help make sure your employees embrace new technology!
- Technology lovers unite! Harness the enthusiasm of those team members. They should be the first to use the new system, program, hardware or gadget. Not only will they promote the change they will celebrate it with the office. That kind of positivity is contagious and the best kind of internal marketing!
- What’s in it for me? That’s what people want to know. If you can show your team members how the new technology benefits them, they are more likely to get on board. Call it the “happiness factor”. If you can simplify a process and save them time, they will be happier at the end of the day.
- Support! That’s our specialty! Provide the tools to make this technology roll-out a success. Offer patience (not everyone learns at the same pace), encouragement (Remember your technology lovers? Let them be your cheerleaders!) and fun (make training memorable). Rely on us to provide 24/7 reliable support to your team members.
