The Onboarding Program is a structured learning intervention that occupies an interstitial place in the entry process of new hires. Composed of five (5) consecutive trainings, it is meant to supplement the employee’s orientation conducted by the Human Resources Management Division (HRMD) of the Human Resource and Administrative Department (HRAD), and to underpin the assimilation by the host units.
The strategic intent of this program is two-fold:
- It aims to equip new hires with basic functionality, and
- It intends to imbue new hires with the ethos of “employeeship”
The fourth module (Module 4) of the SEC Onboarding Program deals with ‘Thinking Series Lite.’ Unlike the first preceding training programs, this one is designed to equip the new hires with cognitive flexibility (via exposure to creative thinking, analytical thinking, and systems thinking), which will give them a better sense of personal effectiveness and which will make them better ‘thinkers’ when they go about doing their work.
