Julian Davis of Queensland Rail and Naomi Waldron from Easy A discuss Queensland Rail’s onboarding and compliance refresher program - fittingly called All Aboard.  This program was winner of best onboarding and induction program in the Australian Institute of Training and Development 2019 Excellence Awards. 

This program moved onboarding from a cumbersome paper-based three-month long process to a highly engaging digital learning experience that new staff complete on their first day.  With the inclusion of compliance refresher modules, it touches all 7,000 staff and has significant impact in a short period of time.  It’s also a really fit for purpose learning solution. Not only did it meet the technical and design requirements of the project, but significant effort went into making it a strong cultural fit.

Host:  Michelle Ockers

Guest: Julian Davis and Naomi Waldron
