Finding and hiring the right people is often cited as the number one concern of businesses today. It seems we are all competing for the best and brightest workers.A critical component of the HR and supervisor’s job is to hire and onboard talented people who enable the organization to achieve its strategic goals.
Did you know that research has shown that 88% of organizations don't do onboarding well, yet great employee onboarding can improve employee retention by 82%?Those are pretty troubling statistics to deal with when you need your new hires to hit the ground running. What we're going to discuss in this webinar is how to hire right and train smart during onboarding.
Introducing an onboarding program into your hiring process can mean the difference between retaining your employees or watching them walk out the door after several months. Companies who implement an effective onboarding program during the first three months of the new hire employment experience, will have 31% less turnover than those who don’t according to research by the Aberdeen Group.
Onboarding is important because it introduces the employee to the company’s culture and expectations and gives the employee the vital training and information needed to succeed in their new position. Also, a new hire’s compatibility or culture fit will likely be determined during the onboarding process. This can save the employer from a prolonged investment into the wrong person.

- Best practices in recruitment, hiring, and onboarding
- The differences between orientation and onboarding
- Onboarding approaches to integrate the new hire into their job and organization
- Creating a positive and streamlined experience for your new hires
