Change is scary. Changes to a routine that you’ve had for years is daunting. Yet as infamously quoted by Heraclitus, “change is the only constant in life”. Companies must continue to evolve their routines and processes due to both internal and external forces. The prominent external forces driving change include remaining relevant and up to date with societal changes and expectations. In order to meet the demands of their customer, the company must be willing to make changes in order to accommodate their needs. Typically the changes made to the organization are structured to achieve desired external outcomes such as to bolster sales, distinguish themselves amongst competitors, and to establish expertise. Yet other changes made in the workplace are not just to benefit the external forces, but to benefit the internal factors such as work flow of the office, the employee’s performance, or the morale of the organization. Described below are the most common changes in the workplace that employees tend to struggle with, and tips on how to best tackle these changes.

More and more companies are faced with not just offering competitive salaries to attract talented candidates, but also offering benefits that go above and beyond what other companies are offering. Gone are the days of just proposing a good salary, medical benefits, and vacation time. Today’s new hires are looking for a wider range of benefits to grow personally, as well as professionally.
