Process of Change – working with and for volunteers Arlene Grubbs: Managing the Impact of Organizational Change on Volunteers – 4 Stages Resistance Confusion Integration Commitment
Stage 1 - Resistance ‘If there are no opportunities for volunteers to express concern, outrage etc, these will continue to simmer and prevent volunteers from moving through the change process’ Volunteer administrators: – ’be willing to say if you don’t know what is going to happen’
Stage 2 - CONFUSION Volunteers…’begin to hunger for some clarity’. Volunteer administrators: advice- ‘As much as the thought of hiding in your office may be tempting, this is the time to be visible’.
Stage 3 -INTEGRATION Assisting volunteers to secure roles in the new environment. An opportunity to revitalise the partnership between paid and volunteer staff Important to help volunteers to see how the implemented changes will assist the organisation in performing its mission better.
Stage 4 - Commitment People begin to look to the future Hold to the course that’s been set while being open to new ideas
Overall ‘The good old days may not even look quite so good – now that we’ve learned how to be even better’.
