Employee Orientation - New & Improved!
Our title may sound familiar to some, but this new program is designed for all employees to participate. You may understand our culture, but do you know how this has evolved and where we are headed in the future?
Human Resources has worked collaboratively with the County Administrative Office, Risk Management, Sustainability, Recycle at Work and Emergency Preparedness staff to design a comprehensive program filled with valuable information all County employees should know.
A few highlights include:
Don Bohn speaks on our history and vision for the future.
Cynthia Valdivia our resident Emergency Preparedness expert presents an informative session on how to prepare you and your home so that you as an employee can be effective in an emergency.
Janna Allgood our Sustainability program educator increases our awareness of what sustainability and recycling at work means and how it is a lot of little things that we can do each day that make a difference.
Participate in a fun interactive networking opportunity with other employees.

About the Workshop: This workshop, which promises to be fun and interactive,provides participants with a deeper understanding of unconscious bias and how it impacts our personal and professional lives. We will also explore its effect on productivity, workplace relationships, and customer service. Once we understand our biases, we will learn how to increase our cultural intelligence as the antidote through a series of activities.
|Dates:||April 23rd & October 22nd|
|Time:||9 a.m. - 3 p.m. (break for lunch 12 - 1 p.m.)|
|Location:||Public Services Building, Auditorium|
|Register:||Log on to WISARD Learner Self-service/HR/2014 Training/Professional Development and enroll.|
**Once you have enrolled, be sure to add the workshop date to your Outlook calendar.
About the Trainers: Our workshop facilitators believe becoming culturally competent is not a destination, nor is it just about figuring other people out. It is about becoming more aware of who we are in the context of the increasingly complex and culturally diverse world in which we live and work. It is a process, one of learning how to foster better relationships, how to be more productive, and how to improve job performance.
