Inspiring and forming new habits is a matter of playing the long game. Effectively and successfully changing your employees’ behavior requires a long-term approach in which the full range of your communication channels is employed.
Changing your behavior and adopting new habits can be hard – your employees might need a little help. Nudging people along in the right direction starts by explaining the ‘what’ and the ‘why’ before introducing the desired change, and repeating them continuously. Does your internal communication strategy support behavioral change or do you leave your workforce groping in the dark?
Realizing behavioral change requires staff buy-in and motivation, inspirational internal communication content, systematic repetition, and a collective bull’s eye. Employ your communication channels in a campaign-approach to provide a motivating and engaging change experience.
Bridge the gap between your staff’s intention to show behavioral change and action by scheduling reminders when employees must show new behavior – for example, remind people of their new values and beliefs when they make a decision.
