The H&R Block New People Leader Program

Program Description:

For our June session, the Talent Development group from H&R Block will share insights from their recent Excellence in Practice award-winning New People Leader Program. The speakers will include Jana Meyers, Manager-Talent Development, Cindy Pollock, Senior Developer and Chris Arnold, Program Manager. 

The session will include: 

  • Who is our audience? – Our newest leaders were underserved and under-equipped to be effective in their new roles.
  • How did we get started?- Consulting with their business partners to determine the scope of the need based on the wants and performance gaps that were shared.
  • What was our approach in a new learning world?- Establishing a program during a global pandemic, quarantine and a busy tax season by leveraging concurrent learning modalities. Including live sessions, discussion boards, eBooks, book clubs, online learning, and real-world exercises centered on skill application.
  • Where have we had early successes? - Examples shared from participants and their leaders in how skills were applied in their practical reality.
  • ·        What’s next? Lessons learned and the future- The program will continue to evolve through what’s been learned and will “relaunch” in early fall.
