Creating a sustainable workplace: MiP's guide to managing change

By MiP

At today's session of the MiP Summit, we are launching our guide to managing change: Creating a Sustainable Workplace

This short guide focuses on how MiP and its members can contribute to ensuring change management is done well. MiP believes well managed change can be empowering. But at the heart of successful change management is the ability to carry the workforce. Whatever the drivers of change, this is essential.

The guide includes:

  • an introduction to models of change management, principles of good practice and an overview of common problems 
  • references to relevant initiatives across the four nations of the UK 
  • practical advice on what MiP members – as individuals, managers, and representatives – can do to ensure change is carried out effetively, fairly, and in a open and consultative way

We hope that you will use this guide to have both structured and informal discussions in your workplace about improving change management and making the NHS a sustainable place to work. If you're interested in getting involved in MiP's work on organisational change in your workplace, please contact your national officer.

This is the last of three guides published this year for MiP members as managers, representatives, and individuals. Our guide to organisational culture was published in April, and a guide to managing equality and diversity was launched at the MiP Summit on 9 November.
