Are you familiar with the word “on-boarding?” It’s a “buzz word” that’s interchangeable with the words “new-hire orientation.” It often starts with the greeting: “Welcome aboard!” It involves a roadmap for making a great first impression and “closing the sale” on newly hired employees. Helping new employees get off to a great start through an on-going orientation process is the best retention tool that managers have. An investment in on-boarding is an investment in the future of employees and your organization!

Most of us remember what it was like to be the “new kid on the block,” or our first day in school. It was frightening for some and down-right unnerving for others! It’s no different in the workplace. New hires deserve a carefully planned introduction to their jobs, the workplace culture, and the people they will be interfacing with on a regular basis.

On-boarding is more than being nice to new hires on their first day at work and asking them to complete a mountain of paperwork; it’s the first step to keeping new employees engaged and committed to working for you today, tomorrow and beyond. All leaders must step up to the plate and assume responsibility for helping new employees make a smooth transition into their work environment in collaboration with their managers.

This webinar, presented by a seasoned HR pro, Carol Hacker, will provide you with a “toolkit” for introducing new employees to your organization. The first hours, days, weeks and months are critical in the employee-manager relationship.
