Run brainstorming sessions, build consensus, and make decisions with large groups of people on Howspace—the digital collaboration platform for human-centric change.
Many change programs fail because they are managed top-down and lack employee engagement. By taking a people-centered approach, the rate of lasting success jumps up to 58%, compared to just 34% for top-down changes. Howspace differs from other online collaboration tools and social networks because facilitators can guide the conversation and empower individuals to use the platform to drive deep change.
When you involve all stakeholders in the early stages of change, you will face less change resistance. Howspace enables you to create a dialogue between a limitless amount of participants and give every participant a voice—regardless of time and location. You can then tap into the wisdom of the entire company to uncover all potential solutions. When people are truly invested in the change, it is 30% more likely to stick.
63% of people do not trust business leaders, according to the 2022 Edelman Trust Barometer report. To build trust and implement a change program successfully, communication and transparency are vital but they are some of the toughest issues organizations face. Using Howspace as the main hub for collaboration in OCM programs increases transparency and ensures employees understand that decisions are made together, based on their input.
