We’ve been hinting around at a big announcement for the past few weeks, and here it is! By popular demand, we are excited to announce the newest public workshop offering from phase(two)learning!
Join us March 9-10, 2015 for Orientation Overhaul: Re-imagining the New Employee Experience in your Organization!
New Employee Orientation is often a lackluster rite of passage for new employees – consisting of little more than paperwork, policies and procedures. Unfortunately, many programs fail to grasp this unique opportunity to connect with their newest associates, harness their natural new-employee excitement and ignite their passion for your organization…which fuels employee engagement, learning and long-term retention.
So, let’s give it an overhaul! By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
- Identify the strengths and weaknesses in the design and delivery of your current New Employee Orientation program
- Define success for your New Employee Orientation program
- Identify the essential stakeholders across your organization who should be involved in your New Employee Orientation program
- Incorporate strategies into your Orientation program proven to increase engagement and to make sure your new employees “get it”
- Compare and contrast what you’re currently doing with successful practices from industry-leading organizations with an inspiring Onboarding Luminary discussion panel
- Differentiate between must-have and nice-to-have elements in your New Employee Orientation program
- Use concepts learned in this workshop to immediately implement changes to your current Orientation materials in our unique Design Lab session
Who should attend?
- HR & Talent Acquisition leaders who are responsible for their organization’s New Employee Orientation program
- Learning & Talent Development professionals who are involved in developing or delivering New Employee Orientation content
If your New Employee Orientation could use a reboot – we can assure you, this session is for you. And trust us, it will not be a passive, boring, lecture-laden session…this will be an intensive, roll-up-your-sleeves opportunity to immediately work on your own Orientation materials. The workshop will conclude with a unique Design Lab, which will allow you to take advantage of ideas from other participants, as well as receiving coaching and feedback from your facilitators to begin your own overhaul before you leave – and before you get distracted back in the office!
