Onboarding Best Practices: One Chance to Get it Right

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at 1pm ET           Duration: 60 minutes

New hires are the future of your organization. So it’s critical to set them on a path to success starting day one -- and you only have one chance to make a good first impression. But the alarming (and costly) reality is that about 30% of employees don’t make it past their first year. Sometimes, it’s because they lack the skills. But too often, companies lose great people because they neglect the importance of a well-thought-out onboarding program. What a waste. This session will give you a proven blueprint for creating an effective and sustainable onboarding program in your organization. (more details below)

WHY ATTEND

The research is clear: A structured, comprehensive onboarding process gets results. In fact, effective onboarding increases the chances of retaining a new employee for at least three years by 69%, and one study showed that employees were ramped up to full productivity two months earlier in organizations that onboard successfully.

Why does a formal onboarding approach work better than the informal “employee orientation” programs that so many companies rely on? Because a genuine onboarding program integrates employees into the company through socialization, acculturation, training and coaching. It results in employees who clearly understand their role and feel connected to the company.

In this webinar, we’ll show you how best-in-class programs start onboarding during recruitment and have a structured program for employees’ first year on the job. We’ll give you the key components to a cost-effective onboarding plan that will get people up to speed faster and increase new-hire retention.
