Onboarding in the First 10 Days: A Blueprint for Making New Hires Comfortable and Productive – Fast!

Duration: 90 minutes

The first 10 days of employment are crucial for developing new hires into long-term high performers. Investing the right time and attention at this stage makes an enormous difference in whether a new recruit pays off, or becomes a costly and demoralizing failure--for the individual and the company alike.

During those ten days, there are a series of critical steps the company must take to ensure their new hires are set up to succeed. Very few employers do them all. (more details below)


WHY ATTEND

Large companies invest in elaborate onboarding processes that nurture new hires, ensuring they get assimilated into to the culture and feel they’re succeeding in their new role. Small and medium-size businesses often can’t afford that investment, but the need is still there.

Fortunately, there are simple low-cost onboarding tactics that any manager can deploy, especially in the first critical 10 days.

This webinar will give HR executives and managers a blueprint for preventing onboarding disasters. It will review the assumptions that drive an effective onboarding plan and lay out tactical steps for making your new hires’ first 10 days the foundation of a long, productive career with your company.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Our speaker, Dr. B. Lynn Ware, will explain: 

  • Why on Day One your new hires are 100% engaged – full of energy, hope and desire to succeed.
  • What it feels like to be a new hire who is ineffectively onboarded (that is, to have all that energy, hope and desire sucked right out of you within days or weeks)
  • A blueprint for the first 10 days that meets five key objectives:
    • Makes news hires feels like they belong
    • Reassures them that they’ll be using their skills and abilities in the pursuit of a meaningful goal
    • Gives them a “quick win”
    • Convinces them they will learn new things and enhance their career options
    • Reinforces their decision to work at your company
  • The critical importance of “Pre-Boarding” – that is, the prep work you can do before the employee’s first day on the job
  • How to get buy-in for your onboarding objectives from multiple stakeholders – members of the new hire’s team, top management, other departments, shared services, etc.
  • How to deal with special onboarding challenges, including top executives, remote workers and entry-level employees
