These days, finding qualified and motivated individuals to join your company is a considerable challenge. Once you have found a candidate, another challenge awaits: how to keep them. Today’s generation may tend to consider a new job not as a long-term commitment but more as a “let’s try this out.” Paying a good wage and offering great benefits help, but, even then, if the work doesn’t fit with their lifestyle or match their ambitions, they may leave and find something new. In other words, the old concept of long-term blind loyalty to an employer is fast becoming a thing of the past. Here’s the good news: it’s proven that employees are more likely to stay if they have a great onboarding experience. During this webinar, we will examine what constitutes an onboarding program and how it differs from orientation. We will discuss simple changes a company can make to entice new employees to engage, while accelerating their potential. We will look at examples of effective onboarding prior to the first workday (preboarding), during the first day, the first week, the first month and the first year. This is a valuable session for those struggling with employee retention, whether they are associate or producer NPCA members. Take that first step to strengthen your future workforce and join us.
At the conclusion of this course, you will be able to:
- Define what an onboarding program is and how it differs from orientation.
- Identify key components of a thorough onboarding program.
- Explain the potential benefits of a comprehensive onboarding program.
