“The experiential New Employee Orientation Simulation was an incredible success for over 2500 new hires in four years across the globe. LSA partnered with us to create an innovative solution on very short notice, and added a huge amount of value that isn’t reflected in their cost. Even our experienced hires were blown away!”

The traditional approach to “on-boarding” — sitting your new hire down with a stack of reading materials, providing access to eLearning modules, or putting them through a series of PowerPoint presentations — doesn’t do much to explain how the organization truly functions or to help them succeed in their new job.  An effective New Employee Orientation Simulation focuses on what matters most to new employees, their hiring manager, and the business.

If you are concerned about speed to productivity for new hires, then this customized and experiential new employee on-boarding approach is for you.

This multi-day, experiential based New Employee Orientation Simulation helps fast growing service and technology companies to substantially decrease the time it takes for new employees to perform at high-levels internally and at a client. This is especially true for new employees that must deal with:

  • Selling, delivering, or servicing custom solutions
  • Demanding clients
  • Increasing project complexity
  • Managing client expectations
  • Leading or working in project teams

This proven New Employee Orientation Simulation provides a platform to introduce company-specific content and methodologies to new employees and have them use it in a reality-based case experience that replicates what they will experience on the job and in the field.

Learning / Facilitation Approach:

  1. Assess & Design
    Custom design a multi-day, experiential new employee orientation that reflects a company’s specific business objectives, work structures, and common challenges such as:

    •  managing change and personal transitions
    •  company strategy, values, marketplace, and value propositions
    •  career development and advancement
    •  products, services, and functions
    •  conflict management
    •  project management, scope creep, and problem solving
    •  presentations, public speaking, and meeting management
    •  consulting, communications, and teaming
    •  solution selling, company methodologies, and technologies
    •  politics, resources, and mentoring
    •  strategic thinking

  2. Pilot
    Run the multi-day experiential program and have people work on job tasks and situations that require them to address and resolve real, predefined, and reality-based challenges. Facilitate and debrief team outcomes to provide people with a deep learning experience that helps them see the relationships between their results, their actions, and operating paradigms.
  3. Continuous Improvement
    Incorporate feedback and lessons learned into ongoing on boarding processes.

Participants are fully engaged: They are doing and learning.

  • Speed to Productivity
    Up to a 50%+ reduction in time required for new employees to add value because the sessions are highly focused on what people need to know and do.
  • Increased Client Satisfaction and Service Levels
    Learning that’s directly applicable to internal and external client project situations and project delivery.
  • Time and Money Savings
    More prepared employees require less support, less damage control, and have greater productivity.
  • Increased Morale and Sense of Culture
    New employees create bonds that increase information sharing, morale, and cultural normalization.
  • Increased Consistency and Application of Methodology
    Through experiential practice and application, new employees become advocates and “super users” of key processes methodologies.
  • Increased Cross Selling of Services
    Increasing awareness of multiple service offerings and their connections increases both cross and referral selling between business units, practice areas, industry verticals, and geographies.

Target Audience
Experienced and inexperienced new employees.

What new hires say about new employee on-boarding:

  • “This is the best new hire process that I have ever been through.  The new hire Survivors’ Guide is my new bible.”

What hiring managers say about new employee on-boarding:

  • “Having a proven and consistent process to get my new hires up to speed has been a godsend.  I could not meet our growth targets without it.”
  • “As a hiring manager, I was at first skeptical of the process. Now, I mandate that all new employees go through the new hire orientation process because it saves me time and dramatically increases their speed to productivity.”
  • “The difference between new hires who went through the new on-boarding program and those that did not is astounding.”
  • “While I fought it at first, it is now mandatory for all my people.”
