Putting Together a Winning New Hire Orientation


October 4


3:10 PM - 4:00 PM


Post Acute Care Track 2
New Hire Orientation – it’s a long day (or more!) filled with boring compliance videos, HR paperwork, and lists of dos and don’ts – right? It doesn’t have to be that way! At Covenant Woods, New Hire Orientation is an invigorating, team-building day, filled with engaging speakers, a variety of activities, and toys. Yes, toys. The day starts out with an empathy activity and a heartfelt video from the residents, followed up by a scavenger hunt through their new handbook. The fun continues from there, and in this session, you’ll learn how Covenant Woods turned a day of sleep-inducing compliance training into a day to remember. This doesn’t mean Covenant Woods ignores compliance topics in exchange for fun and games. Compliance topics covered include the aforementioned HR paperwork, HIPAA, Aging, and Safety. And instead of leaving employees drained and ready to shuffle home at the end of the day, they are left with an engaging take-away to prepare them for work at Covenant Woods. Session attendees will get a look at the Covenant Woods New Hire Orientation program, and take away concrete ideas for ways to spice up your New Hire Orientation. There will be time set aside at the end of the presentation for attendees to share what’s working for New Hire Orientation at their organization, as well.
