Bringing new employees into an organization is more than making sure the appropriate paperwork is completed and new workers attend an orientation session. This webinar will address:

  • The importance of a consistent on-boarding experience that extends well beyond the first week of employment.
  • Why an on-boarding approach today should be different from past programs.
  • The strong tie between successful on-boarding and employee retention.
  • The relationship between on-boarding and employee productivity and retention.
  • How an on-boarding program benefits from the use of technology.

 This session will include case studies from organizations that have seen measurable results in retention, productivity and acculturation as a result of addressing new-hire needs as a component of their human capital management approach to new talent.
