6 ways to convince your coworkers to adopt new technology

 

“My coworkers are used to Excel and Outlook. They have their way of doing things and they don’t have time to learn a new tool. What can I do about it?”


We hear it all the time. Coworkers may be particularly resistant to change sometimes, but change management in general is something all businesses (and managers) face. New technology often promises to make your lives better or easier, but you have to get everyone on board for it to work.

Here are some ways to make new technology adoption successful.

  1. Put the right communication and training in place from the beginning.

When announcing the change and communicating along the way, don’t overwhelm your coworkers with information. Talk about and train coworkers on changes to their day-to-day process. By focusing on real-world examples, you can overcome the “fear of the new” as users realize the benefits of the new technology.

Also be clear about what’s changing and what’s in it for them. Will it give them the opportunity to make more money? Will it increase productivity in a way that reduces weekend work?

  1. Remember that it’s a political campaign. Get the influential users on-board and neutralize negative parties.

You probably already know the people who are going to be excited about this, as well as those who will resist the change. Make sure to sit down with both factions beforehand. Get the champions involved so they can coach others on how to use the technology to their benefit. Don’t just pick the most tech-savvy individuals; choose people who work horizontally across the organization and are well respected within the team. It can be more meaningful and valuable to get some coworkers who aren’t typically among the earliest tech adopters to help champion a new platform or tool.

Continue to manage emotions through the process. Focus on the positive, and stay positive yourself. Your coworkers look to leadership, so make sure to lead by example.



  1. Make it fun.

Throughout the year, coworkers come together to create winning March Madness brackets, fantasy football teams and pots of chili—competing passionately for bragging rights or another prize. Create a similar competition to build excitement and encourage coworkers to use your new CRM or other new tool. To reduce the technology gap between individuals, set up teams so the more tech-savvy coworkers can coach the less tech-inclined. For example, give a company-paid dinner to the first team to have each broker log 50 calls inside of the CRM. Or give a gift card to the first broker to successfully convert five new proposals to a listing.



  1. Share success stories.

Once employees begin to use the technology more and more, draw attention to the positive impact it’s having on individual and organizational results. Publicizing quick wins helps build a case for change and encourages further adoption. It’s as easy as sending an email or giving a shout-out at your weekly team meeting.


5. Have a post-implementation plan.

Training and adoption do not end when the new system goes live. In fact, post-implementation support is an important area for ensuring ongoing user adoption. Make sure to take advantage of any webinars or training your technology vendor offers, and follow-up with your coworkers frequently.



  1. Set your expectations for technology adoption.

If the tool produces reports and analytics, make sure to use them during check-ins with your team. Use it to review pipeline, performance or other metrics you care about. If you use it yourself—and expect them to as well—make sure it becomes part of your process and interactions.

How Aging Baby Boomers Are Changing Commercial Real Estate Investments?

 

People around the world are living longer than ever before. And these people are going to need steady streams of income to sustain them through retirement.

When it comes to commercial real estate investments, meeting the needs of aging baby boomers opens up new demands and opportunities.

Retirement-minded portfolios

Real estate investments will help baby boomers through retirement, says David Green-Morgan, JLL’s Global Capital Markets Research Director. They provide “exactly the type of investment that pension schemes are looking for: lower risk more predictable income streams that allow them to match their outflow liabilities.”

And institutional investors are catching on—JLL predicts global real estate transaction volumes will blow past the $1 trillion mark by 2020, largely due to the extra cash these investors are allocating to the sector. While institutional investors only account for around 20% of the market currently, experts expect them to become bigger and bigger players over time.

It’s a global market

As more investors add real estate to their portfolios in order to find secure income streams — which are lower risk and inflation protected — supply will become limited. Asian buyers are already a major source driving climbing real estate values in the US and Europe, as sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and insurance companies from the region continue to store capital in real estate. And real estate investment is only going to get more global—by 2020 more than 50% of all real estate investment is expected to originate from cross-border activity. That’s about $500 billion a year.

But as there aren’t enough investment grade properties hitting the market to keep pace with demand, investors are going to need to cast a wider net. “We anticipate that in the absence of significant new stock becoming available, capital will target many different avenues to achieve its desired direct real estate exposure, including joint ventures, partnerships, M&A and other alternative sectors such as healthcare, retirement living and, increasingly, residential,” Green-Morgan explains.

Asian funds focus on real estate investments

It’s hardly surprising that people are living longer than before, but the combination of a shrinking workforce as aging baby boomers retire while more people draw on public pensions presents a problem. European pension funds are already struggling under this weight and have greater outflows than inflows on a net basis.

But the region most in need of an investment solution is Asia. Asia is home to five of the top ten fastest-aging countries in the next five years, and Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea will be affected more than most.

“As the working age population shrinks in the coming years, global savings investment will surge,” Green-Morgan says. “This is particularly noticeable in China where the drop off in the size of the workforce mirrors that of Western Europe, the U.S., Canada, Japan and Australia.”

With this in mind, Asian insurance and pension funds are planning to invest $300 billion into global real estate by 2020 to help ensure they can take care of their elderly. And it’s a good thing they are—most pension funds in Asian countries are below the global average as a percentage of GDP, according to Green-Morgan, who says, “Looking ahead, we will see increased allocations by the region’s pension funds into real estate as a result of the ageing population, pension reforms and capital market developments.”

While it’s just one of many considerations stemming from the global imminent demographic shift—it’s a critical one to get right. More people are going to enter retirement in the next few years than ever before, and real estate investment will be a critical part of the formula for institutional investors.
