Frontline staff – New workers in DES
In a complicated and constantly changing industry, giving the right support to new staff is critical so they can hit the ground running and avoid feeling overwhelmed. Our DES Employment Consultant Induction series can help them feel comfortable and understand the industry context and framework that they are now working with. It will help you to retain staff and avoid having to go through the costly recruitment process again. Our aim is to assist them to settle in quickly and become productive as soon as they can. The series will also be useful for existing staff that need a refresher or are returning to work after a long absence (such as maternity or long service leave).
Our Employment Consultant Induction coaching programme has a focus on the DES 2018 core elements and the soft skills required for positive client engagement, job placement and effective post placement support. The sessions are full of observed good practices, tips and advice.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Over three on-line webinar sessions, Matt Eldridge will comprehensively introduce staff to the components and good practice soft skills that makes an effective and efficient employment services industry. The webinars will take participants through a range of strategies so they can perform effectively with customers, while touching on the KPI measures and compliance requirements. Our training is operational and complimentary to your internal induction programmes.
Each session is expected run for approximately an hour and a half. This live broadcast will include ample Q&A time. The model of delivery for this coaching programme requires learners to “learn by doing”, which is an active learning approach whereby learners will be given work-based activities to be completed as part of the series. Once the series has been completed you will be forward a Certificate of Completion for your portfolio.
