Accelerating New Employee Success

Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2023, 1:00 pm CT

New employees – and particularly junior employees – don’t know what they don’t know. The playbooks for success, which can seem obvious to senior managers, remain mysterious to them. In this session, we give an inside view of the “New Employee Efficacy” course, based on the book ‘Indispensable: How to Succeed at Your First Job and Beyond’ by expert Meredith Whipple Callahan. We will outline the key success factors for new employees, from “Nailing the Basics” to “Excelling at Execution,” and finally “Exceeding Expectations.” This session will help you build a roadmap for new employees so that they can go beyond the basics and quickly become indispensable.

In this session, attendees will:

  • Learn the playbook for ramping up quickly
  • Gain insight into the best practices for successful new employees
  • Understand how to help new employees go beyond the basics
  • Access the inside scoop of New Employee Efficacy to understand if and how this course fits for your constituencies
