question 31. Please comment on your rating above:

• Many of the programs and opportunities to connect are participant driven.

• Through our location-based cohort model, the associates and alumni develop strong relationships that foster
a strong sense of community.

• We continuously engage current participants and alumni in the shaping and reshaping of the program. We
share pertinent organizational information as it is shared with us, and we actively engage all participants
and alumni to engage beyond just program sessions.

• Manager buy-in of the program as well as the extent to which they have time/interest in creating a sense of
community varies. Also, culturally, whereas we want to create some sense of community we do not want to
put program associates on a pedestal.

• There is strong community across each cohort which comes largely in part due to the orientation experience.
• The FPDP is a strong community and network of members, mentors, assignments managers and Sr. Leaders.

• We have a lot of ongoing engagement through events, panels, mentoring, activities and a formal alumni
community with IT ambassadors.

• We hold alumni events and networking events for in program members but we could do more
• We encourage alumni to connect with current participants, get involved in recruiting, serve as assignment

leaders, etc. We do not have a formal effort in place to keep alumni engaged.
• The program's reputation and brand has continued to build through the success of past & present

participants. As program manager, I strive to create a community feel, as there is tremendous power in
having a network that participants can readily tap into.
• We schedule a lot of community team bonding events and get them involved in a Young Professional group
within our company that is also exposed to companies in the area. We also encourage them to coordinate
events with current and alumni LDP participants.
• Through on going education and training sessions. Community service activities and team projects.
• We provide team building opportunities for each class. These are always during work hours.
• The program manager is responsible for creating the sense of community for the program members and not
the managers.
• We foster a sense of community among program participants via monthly group meetings, social and team
building events, lunch and learns and other program-specific activities.
• The company is very involved and committed to the ITLDP program- executive and senior management
embrace the program participants. Opportunities are provided to each participant.
• Brand new program launched in August 2017.
• Consistent feedback from program members is that their cohort is extremely important to them. The value of
the development program community for networking, mentorship and support is high. I work to foster that
sense of community.

• Collaboration and pulling people together are in their goals for each rotation.

question 31. (Continued):

• Our HRLDP is small, and very connected from day 1 - once graduated, they are part of an alum community
who remain connected and committed to the program and participants.

• We host events and create relationships to drive connectivity.

• Variety of shared resources amongst the participants.

• Through our location-based cohort model, the associates and alumni develop strong relationships that fosters
a strong sense of community.

• Regular programming, training and social events specific to program participants that creates a distinct
sense of community.

• This is a leadership program designed to develop potential future leaders for the company. So it's important
we hold high standards for the participants and even Rotation Managers, when managing them.
Additionally, we provide them with unique opportunities to connect across business units, across other
leadership programs and with senior executives. It's critical that this program has a sense of its own identity
and community, in order to maintain that "elite" status that we want them to feel.

• It is easier to encourage sense of community in same business site location (i.e. Bridgewater, NJ) but difficult
across sites (i.e. Bridgewater, NJ and Cambridge, MA)

• Classes are brought together for 6 weeks of training including community service and team building where
relationships between the participants are strengthened.

• I think alumni try to create a sense of community, but many are simply not aware of the elements of associate
engagement. Until I took the role as program oversight, there has been no real leadership, just program
management by a group of volunteer alumni with varying degrees of accountability and strategic skills. The
steering committee acts more like a project management committee.

• Emphasis on team building among executives and participants.

• Program participants and graduates have specialized training, networking events and are often partnered up
in a mentor relationship.

• As our Finance program has grown, it's been a challenge to keep participants connected. We do this
through Finance roundtable discussions, where participants discuss the details of their rotations, as well as
through mentoring relationships with alumni. We also have Finance-specific manager lunches, where groups
of participants network with current rotation managers, many of whom are alumni.

• We continuously engage current participants and alumni in the shaping and reshaping of the program. We
share pertinent organizational information as it is shared with us, and we actively engage all participants
and alumni to engage beyond just program sessions.

• Prescribed, deliberate networking and team-building activities.
• Multiple events during the year for current participants and graduates to come together. Recently began an

Alumni connection quarterly touchpoint. Engage graduates in mentoring of participants.

• We have participants all over the country, we could improve building connectedness. We bring them all
together 2-3 year and encourage virtual round tables and meetings.

question 31. (Continued):

• The cohorts from year to year come together for development opportunities and events; they meet regularly on
their own and for formal meetings. The program's success in large part has been due to cohorts'
participation, input/feedback and camaraderie among the participants.

• Managers are held to a high level of accountability to manager entry level program participants - and most
team members enter through a program - but all team members are part of the united Finance family.

• Regular calls, network opportunities, team events.

• We leverage current and former participants to mentor one another and interns (which is a pipeline to the full
time program). A lot of former participants are current assignment managers or are other members of the
leadership teams. Currently, there is no specific programming designed to formally bring people together.
Networking during the program is highly encouraged.

• Emphasis on team building and networking with executives.

• We hire 2x per year in classes/cohorts (Jan and June); 1 orientation across all 5 LDP (HR, Finance, IT,
Operations, Actuarial/Analytics) for all hires; Across LDP committees and projects; Program related
committees; networking within and outside of programs, Alumni committee to engage grads

• We have engagement teams consisting of our program associates that organize activities throughout the
year.

• Connections between program and program alumni are made in the recruitment process and continue
through the program. Monthly lunches, social events and roundtables are facilitated to establish a community
among the program participants.

• Community established through co-hort, quarterly meetings, internal program committees, professional
development.

• Program manager meets quarterly with small groups of participants; quarterly team meeting for all
participants.

• Quarterly team meetings, program committees.

• We host an annual summit to bring all program alumni together with current participants. This includes a
learning element, networking, and a team building element. We host summer brunch for program alumni to
meet summer interns, share their experiences Alumni are assigned as mentors for summer interns, and in
some cases for current program participants The program is a 2 year rotational program - Once offer is
accepted, incoming 1st years area assigned 2nd year buddies.

• Alumni councils create activities to ensure program participants and alumni are interacting and continuing
with development.

• Each class is brought together annually. Each time the program manager visits a site, she invites program
participants and grads together for dinner. Yammer site used.

question 31. (Continued):

• Ensuring alumni remain highly engaged post graduation is an essential component of the program. Current
program associates are encouraged to establish formal mentoring relationships with individuals who
graduated the program. Furthermore, associates regularly coordinate with alumni to establish networking and
training opportunities. [The program] also developed the Alumni Board whose aim is to inform and engage
Alumni via growth/development-related events.

• Manager buy-in of the program as well as the extent to which they have time/interest in creating a sense of
community varies. Also, culturally, whereas we want to create some sense of community we do not want to
put program associates on a pedestal.

• Our program is not formally managed at this time. Within the business units/operating companies there is
some effort to create a sense of community. It varies by company.

• It varies. In some pockets HR leaders are driving a sense of community for the broader organization more
than for development program associates.

• Focus is on leveraging program brand for opportunity, networking and support.

• There is strong community across each cohort which comes largely in part due to the orientation experience.

• Monthly group meetings, many networking opportunities, team building events.

• Monthly meetings will all Finance LDPs, functional break-out sessions at the bi-annual face to face gatherings
and regular 1:1s keep all current participants highly engaged with each other. We are not doing anything to
to continue that sense of community after program graduation (hence the score of 8 vs 10).

• Aim to create unique experiences to bond together as a team.

• Specific activities in-program for the participants.

• We have monthly and quarterly calls, functional training, constant communication.

• For graduates we do 3 times a year alumni events sponsored by the program office, we engage the alumni in
program execution and events. On-program associates are only in 3 locations so they form bonds through
training together, in rotation events etc.

question 33. Please comment on your rating above:

• Members are recruited from all around the world, and they have a bond as strong as glue. They begin the
bond through social media and then continue to grow this bond during PDP weeks as well as rotations and
travel.

• Sometimes too much focus on community.

• Our program is extremely high touch between the program office and members and there is a lot of
engagement.

• More so with in program members than alumni. We will be focusing on alumni in 2018.

• Alumni participation and engagement is good but could be improved.

• Many of our alumni continue to stay connected to the program through recruiting, mentoring and attending
our big presentation days, but I'm constantly working on new ways to enhance this community feel. One
recent example was a "hackathon" where we invited alumni to join our current associates in an all-day
event. Geography & limited travel budgets continue to play a major challenge though, especially outside of
the U.S.

• LDRP network is very connected with both alumni and current participants.

• Similar comments to above. They typically get very involved in these non-mandatory events.

• Classes and team works closely with one another on a monthly basis for education sessions; training,
recruiting and planning.

• Community is mostly formed by the participants themselves. Many of them live together when first moving to
Pittsburgh (if not originally from here). Also, we recruit from strategic schools, so the participants have
common background/schooling which allows them to connect. Furthermore, for the first rotation they are in
groups working in our stores. This helps create a bond between those participants working/traveling
together.

• The program participants are very engaged and supportive of each other. Sharing experiences, working on
committees to better the program - providing them opportunities to lead and manage.

• Brand new program launched in August 2017.

• I would say that the vast majority of alums and current program members feel strongly about their
community. They consistently reach out to each other for support on the job as well as interpersonal
engagement outside of work.

• Based on participant feedback.

• Efforts to drive this centrally have only been in flight for past 6-9 months.

• There is more opportunity to make this part of the fabric of the culture. There are annual events and one off
events/mentor pairing but sustainability is in process.

• These efforts began within the last 12 months and have begun to create an environment.

• Program members start as a cohort and are at similar stages in career, so there is naturally a sense of
community among them. They will initiate their own lunches, social events, etc. And many choose to live with
each other. I often have to remind them to branch out and make social connections via other [company]
groups and their Departments.

question 31. (Continued):

• As we grow into new sites and departments, this has diluted the community sense a little, so we are working to
continue to drive this within our culture.

• Participants have a good sense of community within the program.

• The network of graduates is strong and it is common for there to be happy hours where alum are invited for a
certain geographical location.

• Community exists primarily by class, e.g. class of 2017 and so on.

• Participants are very inclusive of one another and interact outside of work on a personal level.

• Participants are friends outside of work as well.

• The initiatives mentioned above are relatively new, but I do think they're making a difference. Our program
has a strong brand internally and externally, including with our executives. As such, there is a sense of pride
our participants feel in being part of the program, which drives a close sense of community.

• Since our numbers are small, its not difficult to keep close to all of the participants and alumni.

• It is a small, close knit group

• There is room for improvement. would like to pair up a program "buddy".

• It's very important to the participants that they stay in touch, provide mentoring to less tenured members and
recognized as being part of the program.

• Peers and friends for life.

• Even though there is no formal alumni association or specific in-program social events, there is a strong sense
of community. The program participants get together for networking opportunities, trainings as a cohort, and
are encouraged to discuss their rotations and work experiences with one another to help them learn about
what the other are doing. Because there is a large alumni population, current participants often work with or
for former participants or are mentored by them.

• It is a small close knit program.

• It depends on the and how many program participants and grads are there. It also depends on the
individual.

• There has been progress made with the addition of more networking opportunities in and outside of the LDPs
along with Alumni focus. Still room for more traction.

• In recent months associates attended team lunches (lunch in the park), summer picnic, tennis competitions, and
brewery tours. We meet once a month as a team, and associates present 80% of the content.

• We have a small alumni group and they may an effort to stay connected even in different locations.

question 31. (Continued):

• This program is still relatively new (two classes of alumni). Alumni and current participants get together often
and continue to support each other.

• Participants sit together on the job and interact very frequently.

• Program is only two years old and building momentum.

• The group is very bonded, they rely on each other, and frequently socialize with each other outside of work.
They are often roommates with each other.

• [The program] prides itself on the high caliber talent the program attracts and ultimately hires. This helps
develop a community with high ethical regard, collaboration, innovation and passion. Associates are
encouraged to work together when completing projects and learning new skills. Program Managers empower
associates to take control of their career, as well as navigate through any barriers within the professional
setting.

• Associates' efforts to create a sense of community also varies. In some pockets there is a very high interest in
being connected to each other. Sometimes they leverage each other as a support network for functional
questions, but in some settings they also want to "fly under the radar" and not be found out by the general
population. They perceive pros and cons to being known as a program associate.

• To some degree the associates are connected to each other through their awareness of being in the same
program and so a natural sense of community exists.

• There is an associate driven monthly call which supports the sense of community.

• Active social network that excludes management for most - reported strong engagement.

• Lots of interaction and support amongst the group.

• Since all program participants, they sit within the functional organizations. They sometimes feel stronger ties
to their specific Finance teams than the program.

• Specific meetings and events lead by participants help to increase this.

• The LDP's connect with each other and share experiences.

• Some locations are better than others with community but overall very good.

• Driving community between people in different US locations and countries/regions; between people in early-
in-career program (newer stream) with traditional, more senior stream.
