Our project scope with United was to develop a comprehensive training program to be used in conjunction with a five-week onsite training program for new hires. The program had to quickly identify personal styles and approaches to customer service, and be presented in a very practical, hands-on approach. The program was designed to assist in training of 3600 new employees.
United Airlines required 12 hours of curriculum, along with scripting, directing, and producing videos using subject matter experts in the actual work place environment. In addition, the following materials were required: Instructor and Student Manuals, PowerPoint presentations, strength based assessments and reporting software for personal action plans.
The time frame for development was less than 90 days from receipt of contract. IML was to provide qualified trainers with at least a Masters level degree to train 4 days a week on-site in Chicago for an 18-month period.
- Highest rated training materials (from UAL internal sampling) of any new hire training module.
