Many great companies,
when there are rumors of mergers
or downsizing,
will hold meetings,
preemptively addressing employee concerns.

Innovation can be as stressful
on employees.

Anita Campbell

“Anxiety about possible job loss
or changing roles,
doubt that the innovation will work
and fear of failing at new tasks
are common feelings
employees have in response
to innovation.

Trying to deny
or gloss over these concerns
will only make things worse.”

Address these feelings,
preferably preemptively.
They’re not going away
and they will depress your employee’s output
until you deal with them.
