Newcomers can serve as great agents for change as they see the organisation with fresh eyes. That is why Monique Janmaat supported the design of a new style induction programme and facilitated a leading change session, both with the objective to design a participatory induction programme for 30 new employees of the East African Community Secretariat. The induction should lead to a strong relationship between new staff, that will stay connected and that will act as change agents for a more integrated culture within the secretariat.
Participants of the meeting said:
Very innovative method of ‘finding information for yourself
I like the aspect of change agents to deal with the institutional and traditional attitudes and mindsets that need change
