WEBINAR: Is It Time To Re-Think Your Onboarding Process?
February 21, 2017
10:00am – 11:00am Central

Presenters:  Doug Dillon & Amber Auge, ASA Education Foundation

If you’re like most companies in the industry, you have an “on-boarding” process that you use when new people start. After a while, that process can get stale. And, since it is so difficult to find good talent these days, you really want to be on top of your game. After the candidate says “yes!” to your organization, you shift into employee retention mode from Day 1. And they are keeping score. An employee will make-up their mind whether they’re staying with a new job within the FIRST WEEK!

WEBINAR: So You Want to Use an Employee Engagement Survey to Drive Productivity…
September 26, 2017
10:00am – 11:00am Central

Presenters:  Doug Dillon, Director of Professional Development, ASA Education Foundation

One of the levers available to business leaders in order to drive organizational performance is enhancing the satisfaction of their employees. Not only will this increase productivity, it will also reduce involuntary turnover and make it easier to attract top talent. Several distributors and manufacturers in the PHCP, HVAC-R and Industrial Pipe industry are using them with solid success. But how do you create, deploy, and create meaningful action plans as a result? PARTICULARLY with multiple branch sites spread across a wide geography?

WEBINAR: Building Development Plans from the Succession Planning Process
October 25, 2016
10:00am – 11:00am Central

Presenter:  Doug Dillon, Director of Professional Development, ASA Education Foundation

Successful managers build development plans for their employees to help them grow.  Successful companies build succession plans to ensure their strategic plan will succeed.  Yet, often times there is a disconnect between individual development plans and those the organization needs to meet its succession plan.  This webinar will look at building development plans “backward” from the succession plan, and why it’s important to do this IN CONCERT with career development plans that are initiated by employees.
