New joiner onboarding with blended learning
When it came time to onboard the July 2020 class of associates, the Professional Development team faced a new challenge: onboarding new joiners in a fully remote environment.
With 360Learning in place, the team enlisted their subject-matter experts to help transform a two-week in-person program into a blended learning program with 23% of trainings delivered through 360Learning.
In the US, 83 new joiners completed the two-week onboarding program. The blended learning approach included 15 hours of digital training and provided new joiners with scaffolding for live sessions.
Olivia Loome, a July new joiner, explained, ‘‘The introduction of content ahead of live sessions gave me time to think through the information before discussing it with others. I enjoyed the mix of videos, slides, and quizzes. I even kept a folder of my cheat sheets to reference later.’’
Increased visibility and recognition for the Professional Development team
By collaborating with the organization to digitize training, the Professional Development team gained visibility into various training initiatives across AlphaSights– enabling them to ensure every team training meets their quality, brand, and compliance standards.
Brody Garrity, an AlphaSights manager said, ‘‘Now, I see the Professional Development team is here to help me and my team do our jobs better and scale much more effectively. We’re really excited about the results we saw with our July new joiners and we’re looking to add more digital learning to our playbooks that goes beyond the first two months of onboarding.’’
