Remember your first day at the new job? Who knew there were so many benefit options? Do I put a 0 or a 1 in the tax forms? The video from the CEO was interesting and lunch was nice, right? Nearly 50% of hourly workers leave within 4 months and the same is true for senior leaders brought in, they leave in 18 months.
A structured onboarding program is key to long-term success and involves a strategic long-term plan. In this session, you’ll get access to a process that combines tactical training targeted around the needs of the role using the 4 “C’s” +1 model that centers on constant communication, feedback, and performance measurement — all factors that impact employee retention and engagement. We explore the employee lifecycle for mentoring and development and how connecting people together builds the internal network and supports collaboration. Onboarding is more than a 1 and done session, it’s a process that prepares people to be successful for the long-term performance.
