Digital Transformation: how do you get everyone on board and do you ensure digital inclusiveness?
January 31, 2019
On Thursday January 31 we will discuss the challenges to get all employees on board within digital transformation. In recent years, every company seems to have realized how the impact of digital developments will have an effect on businesses. Due to the effect of technology new jobs and required skills arise, and other jobs and skills just applied or disappeared.
According to research by Capgemini, the biggest challenge to successfully complete a digital transformation program is to get everyone in your organisation involved. The lack of a 'digital culture' is, according to PwC, even the reason 75% of change initiatives fail.
Only if change is unambiguously carried within the organization it can be successful. This can be done by giving employees a voice to help decide whether digitization can be used in their daily work and to think about new ways of working. It is important to take into account differences between people, including in age and education level.
The crucial question in this digital transformation is therefore how we can ensure that all employees are included in this transformation? Do all employees have to be included or not? Are there different gradations? And who is responsible for this change being carried on the work floor? Within the board, IT, HR, the manager or perhaps the individual himself?
