Change is inevitable yet everyone resists change. This is because change means new and different. It could be good, it could be bad? But you need to experience it before you can judge. Fear is a normal human response to the unknown. You need to understand why people will resist change in order to address their fears and help them come to terms with change or even request it.
If you want to introduce change into your organisation then you need to be prepared for resistance. Most of the time if change is resisted then it doesn't happen. After all it's very hard to keep the momentum going when everyone around you is negative.
So if you want change to happen, then you need to keep the momentum going. Set targets, set goals, and organise updates. Build up the momentum, make people take ownership of the project.
When it comes to changing your shift operation people are afraid. They are afraid of what it will mean to them. So you need to demonstrate what their life will be like under the new arrangement. Think about their work/life balance. Compare their current work/life balance to the new arrangement.
