On-Boarding: A Four-Step Process to Ensure that New Hires Succeed in Their First 90 Days

Thursday, June 1, 2017 at 1pm ET           Duration: 90 minutes

Studies show that 80% of companies do either a poor or mediocre job of acclimating new employees.

Translation: A majority of companies are spending staggering resources on advertising, search fees, interviews, salary negotiations and background checks to find the “perfect” candidate – then throwing it all away by mishandling the candidate’s transition into the organization. (more details below)


WHY ATTEND

When companies take a “sink or swim” approach for new hires, the failure rate is extremely high, particularly for higher-level employees.

The monetary price tag – often four times the person’s salary – is only part of the cost you pay. Failed hires hurt morale. They increase workload. They create stress. And repeatedly losing new hires makes your management team appear incompetent.

The good news is that you can dramatically improve your success rate and avoid the staggering cost of failed hires if you implement a systematic on-boarding process at your company. This session will tell you how to do it.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Participants will learn: 

  • A step by step on-boarding process covering the first 90 days
  • Why typical “Employee Orientation” programs don’t cut it in today’s marketplace
  • The “Five Myths” of rapid assimilation

  • Why giving new employees a “fast start” is critical
  • How to make the business case for an on-boarding program to senior management
  • Why effective on-boarding has four times more power than compensation in winning discretionary effort from new hires
