LifeCycle – A Comprehensive and Engaging Approach to Developing Learning Professionals

If your learning organization is in need of standardizing onboarding and exit processes then this session is a must! Formalized employee onboarding programs are a benefit to any organization. According to a 2011 study conducted by the Aberdeen Group, “organizations with a standard onboarding process experience 54 percent greater new hire productivity and 50 percent greater new hire retention.”

The Merck Global Human Health Learning and Development (GHH L&D) team presents an overview of their comprehensive LifeCycle curriculum that outlines a true end-to-end approach for onboarding, professional development, and exit /transitioning tasks for learning and development professionals.

The Merck LifeCycle curriculum provides guidance for completion of tasks, processes, and key milestones for learning and development professionals – from start date through to exit tasks that need to be completed before transitioning out of a learning and development team.

Come learn about the Merck GHH L&D learner centered and customizable learning approach which includes insights on the needs analysis process, alignment to L&D competencies, iterative design and development, as well as metrics used to measure program and learning professionals’ success. In this interactive session, participants will outline their own “LifeCycle” curriculum by participating in activities that will help to identify organization-specific processes, competencies and existing learning assets that will ensure the efficient and effective development for new learning professionals, achievement of business goals, and ongoing business continuity.More specifically, participants will:

  • Explain critical components of a successful end-to-end process including onboarding, skills development and exit strategy
  • Identify critical onboarding tasks, skill building needs, and critical exit tasks for your learning organization to ensure business continuity
  • Create a checklist for your learning organization’s onboarding to exit/end-to-end process

“When new employee onboarding is done correctly, it leads to higher job satisfaction, organizational commitment, decreased turnover, better performance levels, career complementing, and lowered stress. An employee at any level should always remain comfortable at their job while helping the organization accomplish specific goals at high-performance levels” ~Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM)
