Onboarding with an Impact

At The Children's School, every new hire, regardless of his or her position, goes through a customized two-year onboarding program. This program helps build a stronger community, nurture the school culture and create lasting relationships. In addition, the program allows hiring to move faster, go deeper and create alignment because there is intentionality and discipline in the process. Onboarding over two years creates a sense of belonging and purpose, with every detail considered. Learn how The Children's School has made a big impact with new employees through this novel onboarding program.

Learning Objective: Participants will take away tips and tricks for creating an intentional pathway to help new employees achieve a sense of belonging and purpose.

Seeking Common Ground: Finance, Facilities and Operations

In independent schools, finance, business and operations professionals share many of the same goals, one of which is to provide a safe, healthy learning environment for students. While this goal may sound simple, it can be difficult to achieve, and facilities and operations are often challenging areas for business officers to manage. So how can a facilities manager and business officer get everyone on the same page? Seeking common ground and asking critical questions is a good place to start. Join the experts as they discuss how much capital is needed to maintain existing buildings and how it should be allocated. Plus, learn about ways you can leverage new technologies in facilities and operations to make your processes more efficient.

Learning Objective: Participants will learn what critical questions to ask their facilities management team to kickstart a collaborative relationship and build a robust facilities management program.
