New Employee Development
Designed for employees in their first three years at Elon, these programs encourage professionals to consider their career path and professional goals. Programming runs throughout the year and includes workshops to enhance professional development, personal strength identification using a wide array of tools and assessments, teamwork strategies to meet organizational goals and creating an effective professional development plan.
Joining Elon Continuity Series
A Lunch and Learn session on Change Management will be facilitated by Dr. Kate Panzer for employees who have been at Elon for less than a year. The Joining Elon Continuity Series programs are also an opportunity to build relationships with other “new” Elon employees across campus. Dr. Panzer will assist attendees with learning their preferred styles in approaching and dealing with change. Attendees will complete a brief on-line assessment prior to attending the session and they will receive their individual results during the session. Attendance will be limited to the first twenty attendees who register on the Office of Leadership & Professional Development website. A buffet lunch will be provided.
Mark these remaining dates on your calendars: Jun. 14, Jul. 12, and Aug. 9
