My instructor ask me to ask question regarding change management on an HR forum and she said that as much as possible, HR managers, professionals and practitioners will answer my question. The answer will be reported on our class and I would be very grateful if you could grant this humble request of mine. Thank you.

An HR must recognize the employees, even to the small achievements in order to boost its morale and make them feel like they can face changes.

Treat the employees well. Like responding to their greetings and listening to their grievances. That is what I think an HR must do.

I think an HR must take time to converse with the employees as to what they think of the change which is conducted by the management. The HR must listen. In that way, the employees will feel that they are heard and has a value in the company.

The HR must first tell the employees the importance of the change and then encourage them that together they can face it. That is what I think. I hope I was able to help. Actually i'm a student like you.

If I am the HR, I will set myself as an example. An example of an employee that is willing to face the change. I will show to the employees that the change is important and me, myself, is going to obey it. Then I will encourage them.

Show the employees how important the change is by explaining to them the vision and how it is going to be attained.

First establish a good rapport, lead by example, well mannered and disciplined. Inspire them, it brings positive reward, address grievances with tact and confidence and deal every one with fair treatment.

As an HR, you must let the employees feel that you value them. Show it through your words and actions when you talk to them.

I think an HR must do is to share the goals and the direction of the change. In that way the employees could understand well why it is needed and they will be empowered to take part on it.

The HR could first make the employees trust him/her. She should show that every actions and decisions he/she made are right and without any bias. Then, whatever he/she may ask, the employees will surely take part of it.

I think an HR must delegate authority and give opportunities to the employees so they can be empowered to face any changes.

To empower the employees, the HR must provide all necessary informations so that the employees could feel that they are trusted. So they will eventually join the change conducted.

I think an HR has to show the emplyees that the possible problems they may encounter can be solve. The HR must let them feel that the management is very willing to help in the change management. This will boost the trust and confidence of the employees to face the changes.

Well, an HR must create a good relation to the employees and this can be attain if the HR will give constant feedback to the emplyees. More effectively if the feedback is positve or made the emplyee improve. In that way the employees will be empowered to take part of the change since they know that during the transition, the HR is there to help.

The most empowering action to do will be giving of recognitions and rewards. It will also boost their enthusiasm to do anything and of course to face change.

The HR can listen to the employees' concerns and provide ansewers to each questions to provide guidance. In this way the employees will be guided in taking the change.

The HR could create guilines to the change. Then empoer the employees by letting them be involve to it. The HR could assign task and if that task is achieved, the HR may give a reward or a recognition.

The HR must create an environment where, together with the employees, they celebrate both success and failure. This will make the employees deal with the change more confidently.

I think th HR can make a culture with the employees that whenever they have difficulties, they could share it with a group which will help how to solve it. This will empower the employees to face any changes without worrying on facing it alone.

It will be good if the HR wil promote more on the employees involvement. Especially to the change they are going to have. Because the more the employees are involve, th more thry will commit to it. This action will also empower the employees to be more participative.

I think an HR should provide a positive and encouraging atmosphere to its employees. Because this will be a stepping stone so that the emplyees will be empowered to face the changes.

It would effective if the H will train or expose the employees to changes. Then it will be more effective if the HR will give them recognition if those changes will be achieved.

I think it is best to tell the employees why is it needed to change and why is their full participation is needed to ensure success. It will make them feel that they are indeed part of it. I also agree to Simple Merl.

You have to make your employees feel that they belong to your organization and recognize every effort that they have exerted to make their work as efficient as possible. Explain to them very well why there is a need for change in your organization and why they have to be a part of that change to avoid any conflicts and confusion.. I think that's what an HR must do.
