Start Smart at AFA

January 7, 2015 02:17 AM
StartSmart Have you ever started a new job and had things get off to a rocky start? It can be frustrating to show up on your first day raring to go only to be greeted by confusion and uncertainty. American Fidelity works hard to get new Colleagues off on the right foot with our StartSMART orientation. New Colleagues attend three days of StartSMART to learn about AFA, our culture, organizational structure, benefits and perks, products and more! It is also a way to get to know other new Colleagues. During orientation, Colleagues learn about:
  • HR policies and professionalism
  • AFA history
  • How we fight fraud
  • AFA hymnal
  • Security
  • Organization structure
  • Retirement: 401(k) and pension
  • Total cash compensation
  • Health and wellness benefits
  • Products we offer
  • Process improvement
  • Career development
To keep things going after orientation, new Colleagues enjoy lunch with AFA President Dave Carpenter. It’s a way for Colleagues to get to know Dave and share their thoughts about their AFA experience so far. A few months after this lunch, we host a reunion lunch for the Colleagues to meet with an executive to continue learning about AFA and share their feedback. Have any great advice for the first week at a new job? Let us know in the comments and check out our suggestions!
