"Fost(h)r Engagement"

Overview:  Our children are raised in our homes, understanding our expectations, our core values and learning how to interact with various individuals in our household.  When we have a new foster family member, we can't have the same expectations.  They have experienced life differently, had different beliefs, valued different behaviors and learned to interact with individuals differently than we have.

Similarly, at work, our tenured employees have learned the value systems of the organization, but they didn't know these things on their first day, week, month, or even year.  These are learned.  In this interactive presentation, we take our experiences as foster parents and HR professionals to create a relatable road map to an environment that fost(h)rs engagement for new and current employees.  We'll utilize the techniques used to welcome a new foster family member into our household, so they can move from a temporary placement to lifelong family member regardless how long they are with us.

Learning Objectives:

  • Clarify organization value
  • Improve employee engagement
  • Improve front line leadership
