    Welcome to ATD Chicagoland Chapter! 

    Whether you are a brand new member or a member who is getting reacquainted with the chapter, we want to personally welcome you to the chapter.  As we are a rather large chapter with many benefits, events, and programs, it can be overwhelming to feel connected and become acquainted with all the chapter has to offer.  

    We'd like to help you get better acquainted with chapter benefits, services, and opportunities during our next Member Orientation session.  To make it easy for you to participate, the Member Orientation session is held virtually -- you can participate from wherever you are either by telephone or
    Zoom web conference.  Each Member Orientation session lasts about 30 minutes and includes ample time for your questions about the chapter, its resources, and benefits.

    New members (or current members who would like a refresher) are invited to attend our next Member Orientation Session.  If you would like to participate, please register at least two hours prior to the date of the Orientation.  You will then receive instructions on how to call in or join the web conference via Zoom.  This session is for new members or current members only (no guests).

    “The more things change the more they remain insane.”

    Normal, new normal, or new abnormal- no matter what you call our Covid-impacted workplaces, most organizations would benefit dramatically from an effective new employee onboarding program.

    The pandemic influenced “great resignation” has made one thing abundantly clear- most employees still don’t leave their jobs; they leave their bosses! However, a great onboarding program could be the first step in reducing unplanned employee turnover and maximizing performance.

    Join Dr. Gia Suggs & Hayward Suggs as they share valuable tips, tactics, and tricks to help get your workforce up to speed faster and better than the competition “and keep them there”.

    Topics:

    • Difference between onboarding and “orientation”
    • Benefits of onboarding
    • Connection between organization culture and onboarding
    • Best practices in onboarding your remote employees and create a sense of connection

    Warning: There will be fun!
