Many enterprises’ efforts in implementing workplace change initiatives have produced less than optimal results, or have failed altogether, due to factors that business leaders may not know are linked.

A key result of Stegmeier Consulting Group’s research spanning nearly 20 years was the discovery of 15 interdependent tangible and intangible factors — Critical Influences™ — that impact behavior in the workplace, enable or hinder the success of the workplace strategy and, ultimately, the achievement of overall corporate goals. The results of the study demonstrate the universal impact these 15 factors have on behavior in the workplace, regardless of the type of business or the size of the organization.

Using the Critical Influence Approach™ early in the planning of your organization’s workplace strategy, SCG can take a broad look at your enterprise and assess what issues may be barriers to effectively implementing your chosen strategy.

When seeking to change the way work gets done at your organization, be sure to look at the big picture; most workplace consultants will focus exclusively on the physical work environment, and how that change will affect your workforce. Stegmeier Consulting Group takes a more holistic approach to workplace change, examining the 14 other key factors, as well, that if left unchecked, can derail any workplace initiative.
