What You'll Learn
In this webinar, we explored the essential elements of an effective onboarding program. In 2020, 33% of new hires resigned from their positions within the first six months. As the war for talent has intensified in the past two years, this trend has only accelerated, and organizations are looking for answers. Creating an environment that is welcoming, supportive and engaging starts on day one! In this webinar, we discussed the roles of both Human Resources and Operational Leadership in solving this complex problem. We examined the mechanics of effective onboarding, potential pitfalls organizations fall into, bridging the gap between new employees and tenured employees and present creative ideas that move the needle on retention.
You will learn about simple, repeatable tools and processes you can leverage immediately to make an impact on our new employee’s experiences. You will also be able to develop a strategy that ensures a strong partnership between stakeholders.
