Partners HealthCare – Development of Workplace Strategy & Change Management Planning
Partners HealthCare, the parent organization of Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, was spurred by healthcare reform and the need to operate as a leaner organization. Partners’ real estate goal involved consolidating administrative space and functions, and integrating lease expirations of 14 locations.
Partners sought to identify potential areas of resistance that the organization might face if it were to change the physical work environment.
Stegmeier Consulting Group’s (SCG) services included strategic planning, workplace strategy development, and assessing the change readiness of the organization. Partners also relied on SCG to plan and facilitate a series of working sessions with the executive team to begin planning the future of the hospital system’s administrative (non-clinical) workspace.
Partners and SCG identified multiple crucial areas of resistance that were addressed throughout the course of the project, including:
Attracting, engaging, and retaining top talent
Employee demand for work-life balance
Accommodating the multi-generational workforce
The need to elevate leadership skills
Leadership were expected to have a bigger adjustment than staff
