6 tips to combat change fatigue in 2021

About this Guide

The past year of trauma, loss, and upheaval has dramatically altered the workplace. Faced with continuous disruptions and forced to adapt to lockdowns, layoffs, and homeschooling, employees are understandably exhausted.

This has created one of the biggest challenges organizations will face in 2021: How can they buoy employees exhausted from relentless turmoil and change, and equip them for the further changes coming their way this year?

Communication will be at the very heart of how companies and their leaders step up to this challenge. To help you tackle what lies ahead, we asked three experts in behavioral science, communication, and change management to share their advice for employee communicators this year.
