Can you remember your first day on the job here at the County of Ottawa? Were you on information overload? If you were like others, you probably asked a lot of questions. Then, there were questions you didn’t ask because you felt a little silly. Where do I park? Where do I eat lunch? Where are the restrooms? Would your transition here have been easier if you had that “go-to person” to answer these questions?
The Customer Service Team, in partnership with Human Resources, is working to design a County Ambassador Program. This program will assist new employees and transfer employees through the transition into their new roles within the County of Ottawa. Certainly, there will be job-specific questions that only a supervisor or co-worker can answer. The ambassador program is meant to answer those other questions; while creating a solid, knowledgeable network of “go-to” people and promoting the Ottawa Way.
As a County Ambassador, you will be a part of a network of employees willing to answer questions of not only new employees, but current employees. A list of County Ambassadors will be published for all employees.
If you are interested in being a County Ambassador, apply here. (If the link does not work, please copy and paste http://svy.mk/1BPQchQ in your web browser). All applications are contingent upon supervisor approval and attending the training that will take place in May. Applicants will be informed of the training date in early April. The application process will be closed on March 31, 2015 at 5 PM.
