What's your employee experience in Induction training?



 ‘Inducting’ new hires into an organization can be challenging, especially when the intake is regular. HR and L&D teams  struggle with sharing the same content over and over again, and the routine becomes a repetitive activity that no one enjoys. Neither the new hires nor the speakers. If you resonate with this with your organisation induction process and then continue reading forward.
Here, is how to change the induction sessions into something interactive and fun-filled, yet helping participants to learn and retain the contents!
For eg: Sharing company policies with new recruits – leave, attendance, performance review, dress code, email etiquette, IT security, physical security, compensation and benefits, medical benefits………..and so on, is mandatory, but can be daunting and extremely boring.
Want to change this to something fun, yet have a lasting learning experience?
Use the ‘Textra’ Magic Wand! Here is how:
Break the participants into small groups. Groups of five or six are ideal. Have printouts of each policy document (leave, medical and so on) printed out and ready. Give each team one policy document (one copy for each member of the team) to read and discuss. Allow 10 minutes for this activity (longer or shorter based on the number of pages).
Ask each team to prepare a flip chart with highlights of the policy – let them get as creative as they like! They should also prepare a set of questions that they would expect others to ask, and be ready with the answers.
Each team should now make a presentation to the rest about their understanding of the policy. After that, all other participants can ask questions. If now questions are forthcoming, the team presenting the policy can use their prepared set of questions to ask the others – this way they test the understanding of the group. If you have time and want to go further deeper you can have the respective process owners attend the session and ask questions to the teams.
And that’s it! No more Power Point presentations! Not only will you be able to keep the group engaged, but you will find that they learn and retain more of the contents! This will give your new hires an amazing life time employee experience.
There are dozens of variations you can bring into Textra – it is only limited by your creativity!! With creativity and imagination, there is no limit to what you can accomplish with even ‘routine’ training, without sacrificing efficiency but enhancing participants’ learning exponentially!
What do you think you can do with Textra? Share and let me know!
Happy Learning!

Winning in turbulent times...


For the past couple of months we have been working on the journey of Operational Excellence projects for our client and after having done 8 batches the learning and experience has been phenomenal.
Operational Excellence is far cheaper, faster, no risks and simpler to do. It involves the entire organisation and hence its a powerful differentiator as it renews the organisational energy, aligns mindset, objectives and goals in a very major way. Three fundamentals aspects of Operational Performance to keep in mind is Standardization, Improvement and Innovation. Improving Process is far more complicated process and hence driving Operational Excellence is a Managerial and Leadership process as it depends on peoples mindset, creates aspirations and passion for improved performance. It has an outstanding ability of cohesive of people due to involvement of CFT, Employee Engagement and motivation levels. When you are embarking on the journey of Operational Excellence asks yourself how are things happening here? Have you done the right process and got the right results? Done something and you have got the results somehow? Its a very powerful tool a company can apply to improve its performance.

Reinventing HR...

Dear Learners,

In 2015, Google published their results from a two year study into what makes a great team. The interesting thing is that it wasn’t necessarily the teams that contained the most senior people, those with the highest IQs or even teams that made the least number of mistakes who ranked the highest.

Based on their findings, the Google team came up with a list of the 5 key dynamics that make great teams successful: Psychological Safety, dependability, structure & clarity, meaning and impact. While all five were needed to create a successful team, psychological safety stood out as the most important factor. The study found that the teams which made more mistakes were actually more successful. Creating an environment in which people feel comfortable to take risks is the key to creating innovative workplaces. A great, diverse team is one that is able to bounce ideas off each other, strengthen goals, help resolve issues and provide support to its members.

By 2020, there will be five generations working side by side in the workplace. We are all different and unique, but with this comes different ways of working, approaches, mindsets, feelings, behaviours, motivations and needs. This can lead to assumptions, misunderstandings, miscommunication, conflict and under performance. Building a culture of psychological safety, where everyone feels accepted and respected, allows everyone to work in harmony, makes the most of their differences and drives a sense of empowerment to achieve anything.

Learn how to influence and make a difference as an HR business partner by becoming a process consultant and learn the art and science of facilitation skills in our upcoming LEAF workshop.
