    Remember your first day at the new job? Who knew there were so many benefit options? Do I put a 0 or a 1 in the tax forms? The video from the CEO was interesting and lunch was nice, right? Nearly 50% of hourly workers leave within 4 months and the same is true for senior leaders brought in, they leave in 18 months.

    A robust onboarding process impacts all employees especially those who are going to new roles within their current group or another part of the organization. Onboarding now involves blending content resources and using virtual tools to create connections with teammates, business partners, and includes learning scheduled in the workflow to meet the annual business lifecycle. A key component is creating a structured networking experience with others in similar roles to support performance and growth and developing the connections the new hire needs to be successful in their role. This model focuses on providing clarification of new responsibilities and expectations to new team members won’t have experiences that leave them frustrated, confused, feeling alone and unsure of their ability to be successful in this new role.

    A structured onboarding program is key to long term success and involves a strategic long-term plan. In this session I will share a process that combines tactical training targeted around the needs of the role using the 4 “C’s” +1 model that centers on constant communication, feedback, and performance measurement — all factors that impact employee retention and engagement. We’ll explore the employee lifecycle for mentoring and development and how connecting people together builds the internal network and supports collaboration. Onboarding is more than a 1 and done session, it’s a process that prepares people to be successful for the long-term performance.

    At the completion of this session participants will be able to:

    • Identify a process lifecycle that aligns worker needs with organization business needs to focus on long term retention
    • Identify the 4C’s + 1 and describe how they can engage and support an employee in a new role to be successful
    • Describe the areas where technology can be used in the onboarding process to benefit the employee in being successful in their role as they work in remote locations

    ATD Mid New Jersey is proud to participate in the ATD Regional Webinar Series. This collaboration of 6 ATD chapters (including Eastern PA, Greater Philadelphia, Mid NJ, Northern NJ, Long Island & New York City) is bringing together the best of our networks to provide world class presenters and content.  We look forward to sharing these webinars with you throughout 2022.

    For learning programs to be effective, the learners must be able to access them and have the ability to engage.

    The session explores how to design and evaluate current programs for accessibility and compliance. It provides tools to tackle the challenge of creating accessible content that engages learners with various access needs due to disability and medical conditions to optimize the learning process. We examine high level options for to assess learning, testing systems, program implementation and final integration into an LMS. Tools and checklists to establish a plan of action to complete a comprehensive review process are provided.

    This is a highly interactive program; participants will explore the big picture aspects of creating an accessible learning program and Section 508 compliance strategies. All four types of access needs are identified and modeled during the session, we demonstrate access to learning for participants with auditory, visual, physical, and cognitive needs.

    Key Take-aways:

    • Identify the four types of learning access needs and the law requiring access.
    • Integrate inclusive ideas and methodologies to design accessible learning materials

    Stephen Tadeo's academic background is in Engineering. His career started in the defense industry working with Naval aircraft and then submarine systems. From defense, he jumped into the non-profit world working for a union and then for rather large association. Perhaps you have heard of AARP. From there, Stephen moved into telecommunications. That makes Stephen an engineer with a business degree, so, it makes sense that he should be working in Learning and Development. Stephen has a passion for data and data analysis and he is committed to helping individuals and organizations fulfill the promise of advanced analytics. Originally from Philadelphia, he now lives in Atlanta Ga with his wife and close to an empty nest of 4 children.

    Be prepared to break into small groups, open PowerPoint, and try these ideas in PowerPoint yourself.

    Electronic Escape Rooms are all the rage in eLearning and Game Based Learning.  What if you don’t have an authoring tool, but you would like to create one of these games?  Almost everyone in the world has Microsoft PowerPoint and that can work if you know what to do. If you have an authoring tool, then you can do even more.

    This presentation covers:

    • 5 elements that help make a learning game fun
    • Where to find resources for game learning
    • Basics of getting started in PowerPoint
    • Import into software like Storyline.

    Work has changed hugely. And with it has come lots of threat and uncertainty. Since our brains are basically created to function as our “protector” from threat, those leading behavioral change realize better successes with their learners when aspects of how the brain perceives and processes change are taken into account when implementing learning and development initiatives.

    Tricia Steege, Transformation Strategies will be sharing the latest evidence based neuroscience research for organizational change - what happens to the brain during change, how it perceives change and the specific tactical actions we can take as leaders to help our clients move from a place of protecting themselves to fully embracing what their organizational leaders are asking them to do.

    By the end of this session, attendees will be able to:

    1) Describe how implementing neuroscience concepts/activities facilitate change learning and adoption

    2) Educate their leadership clients how neuroscience perspectives on change and understanding of people will help build confidence in their ability to lead others through change

    3) Talk about how implementing change neuroscience concepts drive best practices throughout the ATD Capability Model
