Granby Resident Shares How Executive On-boarding Attracts and Retains Talent

Do you have senior-level employees who are new to the area or have just been promoted to a role that necessitates increased community engagement?  Could you or your employees benefit from a deeper connection to the community, thereby your organization? 

Pia Flanagan, Granby resident and Vice President & Senior Counsel, MassMutual Financial Group, participated in Leadership Greater Hartford’s Executive Orientation Program when she was new to MassMutual and a newcomer to the Greater Hartford area. 

Flanagan shares, “The Greater Hartford area has a lot to offer in terms of civic and cultural engagement and activities. I was hesitant to relocate from New York to this area as I thought it would lack the arts and entertainment offerings of NYC. However, I am quite pleasantly surprised by the depth and breadth of activities for all interests and backgrounds, from theater, symphony, music, and sports – there is something for everyone.”

The Executive Orientation Program is a six-session program designed for senior-level executives who are relatively new to the community, their jobs, or who, in general, would benefit from a deeper connection to Hartford’s issues, institutions, and leadership.  Participants meet the region’s influential leaders and discover places that make Greater Hartford an amazing place to live, work and play.  Executives receive a quick, in-depth understanding of the key players and discover ways they can feel at home, develop roots, and become actively involved in the Greater Hartford community.

Leadership Greater Hartford is accepting applications now for the 2014 Executive Orientation Program that begins in early September.  Please visit  https://www.leadershipgh.org/programs/adult-programs/executive-orientation.html or contact Katy Bannister at katy.bannister@leadershipgh.org for more information.
