Prosci Change Management Employee Orientation


Prosci’s research identifies employee engagement and participation as key contributors to a successful change initiative. In contrast, employee resistance can derail any initiative, from a small process change to a high-investment strategic initiative. Giving employees the knowledge and ability to achieve successful personal transitions can transform your organization from a culture of resistance to a culture of resilience. This program equips employees to play an active role in making change work.
