Victoria has started her professional career 15 years ago when she worked in Hotels due to her interest in international environments and creating excellent experiences to guests. Her strong curiosity about understanding why organizations and processes work the way they work led her to study for her B.A. in International Business Studies focusing on Human Resources related topics. Since then, she kept staying motivated about creating better human experiences in the work place working in Human Resources and implementing software.
Due to her touch points with IT related projects, she decided to study M.Sc. Business Information Technology and fell in love with User Experience Design related topics believing in the depth and complex knowledge covered in this field. During the last couple of years she has gathered various experiences as a Project Manager, Business Analyst and Consultant in IT, primarily focusing on HCM Software implementation projects helping to improve employees to have a better work life with improved and automized processes. Due to her strong interest in UX, Victoria enjoys engaging in various Design Thinking and UX Design communities internationally as she feels a strong connection to likeminded design thinkers, who are curious to solve current issues in the world through design.
About the Event
Onboarding - How to use Probation Periods more efficiently
Hiring cost, turnover rates & lack of productivity are one of the most known challenges organizations have to manage. However, there are still various employees sharing experiences about not receiving tasks after starting a new job or receiving guidance while onboarding. Others seem to experience the opposite - feeling overwhelmed and left alone without any manager support or integration into a new team culture at all.
Some employees might resign a couple of months later and some HR managers are feeling surprised that their newly hired talent is suddenly leaving and did not see that happen. Mostly, this is no surprise at all, but a matter of various influencing factors along the way.
During this panel discussion, we would like to discuss your different points of view and experiences during onboarding periods as an employee and employer. Let's find out what led to good or rather poor experiences on the way. Of course, joining a new work place is not like a visit to Disneyland. However, positive experiences - especially at the beginning of a new job are crucial and called the Honeymoon effect, which is actually decreasing if job changes are happening too often.
We are very excited to welcome you at this panel discussion and might even have the chance to apply some live design thinking methods to come up with our individual panel members solution.
