How HR Can Help Employees Through Organizational Change

Posted by Guest Post on Nov 3, 2020 6:15:00 AM

A 2016 study showed that 96% of organizations reported they were undergoing business transformation, but only 47% expected sustainable value from those changes. In fact, 70% of change efforts fail entirely.
