Successful Employee Orientation Programs
1 hour 30 minutes
Learn the key points of a successful onboarding session and how to set your new hire up for success.
If you are responsible for new employee onboarding, you may be aware that employee orientation is the most important indicator of the success of new hires. 69% of employees are more likely to stay with a company for three years if they experience great onboarding. These new hires will also be 50% more productive in their first 90 days. This can be a source of tremendous pressure or an amazing opportunity. The saying still holds true: You never get a second chance to make a first impression. It becomes your job to give some thought to what kind of first impression of the organization you want new hires to have. Rather than setting new employees up for success, organizations with poor onboarding processes are setting the stage for an early exit. Nearly one-third of all new hires quit their jobs within the first six months. This topic will help you design and implement a cohesive onboarding program. It walks HR professionals through the four levels of onboarding: compliance, clarification, culture, and connection. Learn which paperwork can be done ahead of time, and which must be done face to face. Learn how to convince managers of the importance of an inclusive onboarding process, and train them to participate. Ultimately, you will learn how to design an onboarding process or program that drives retention and performance.
