UNDERSTANDING THE COMPANY’S CULTURE or On-Boarding in South Africa
To help a group of Summer Interns in South Africa get acclimated to a professional service firm’s culture, I conducted a Myers-Briggs Training session comparable to the one received by all regular professional staff.
The Interns were very excited to be learning about personality type and to be treated in the same way as regular professional staff. Ultimately they came away with a greater understanding and appreciation not only of personality type, but for one of this firm’s key values – investing in its people. This experience quickly helped the Interns get acclimated to and feel part of their new firm.
