Interactive Onboarding Day
The Family Services department within Barnet Council (London’s largest borough) were making great changes to their induction procedure. As the department strongly values active listening, sharing and responding to ideas as a team, it was crucial that these ideals were incorporated into their quarterly onboarding days.
Green Hat People designed an Onboarding Game to deliver interactive, engaging, but also informative training methods for the new recruits, with a specific focus on topics such as the organisation’s journey and values.
Introducing an element of creativity sparked lively conversations about the organisation, its culture and the recent changes the council had undergone. Getting this feedback from their candidates provided the department with a better understanding of the way their organisation is perceived and the new employees got to know more about the team they were joining.
Grace Elias, Learning and Development Officer, stated: “The game made for the most engaging, and ‘edutaining’ session we have delivered in Family Services. It was a great success.”
