Onboarding New Hires: How to Get them Quickly up to Speed,Engaged and Productive
August 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am$145.00
You have made your decision about whom to hire.You have gotten them excited about their new job.You are excited about what they can bring to your team.Now what? If you are like most good organizations, you are doing something more. The Aberdeen Group reported that 70 percent of all organizations currently deploy some sort of onboarding program with leaders entering new roles.
While this is a good thing, there is great variability in the focus, depth and length of these programs.The most superficial tend to provide surface-level “meet and greets” and focus on initial paperwork and process knowledge. Others go deeper,focusing on helping leaders learn to navigate the organization’s culture and understand the informal organization and key players. What does yours do? And do you even have an onboarding program?
Also,don’t forget internal transfers.Though onboarding usually focuses on people new to an organization, your current leaders entering new roles need assistance as well. Organizations are made up of many micro-cultures and the informal culture(how things really get done)is what typically drives an organization. Unwritten rules and politics, if not openly discussed,will create obstacles and slow execution. Remember, you never get a second chance to make a good first impression. Onboarding isn’t just about facts,it’s about feeling,too.Effective onboarding programs provide an experience which helps new hires and leaders affirm that they made the right career move. This webinar will cover what you need to ensure your organization is building a stable,committed productive workforce from the start.
