Why managers must involve employees when change happens

Employers pushing for organizational changes without
first considering the importance of employee buy-in
should think about the possible consequences:
Replacing workers can cost from 50 percent to 200
percent of their annual salaries, an employee
retention expert told ITMJ.

According to Roger Herman, co-author of "Impending
Crisis: Too Many Jobs, Too Few People,"
factors such as
the improving economic environment and an increasing
number of unsatisfied workers could coalesce to
produce conditions favorable to running toward greener
pastures. This, in turn, could prove disastrous to
employers hoping to retain the best and the brightest,
because employees, who for years may have felt
trapped, will be able to pick up and leave.
