The first year of employment is critical to retention. According to several studies up to 86 percent of new hires decide within the first six months of employment whether or not to leave the company. Given the cost of acquiring a new employee companies are seeking strategies to find and keep the right people. Strategies include automating as much as possible and leveraging learning and talent management strategies in multiple and blended ways.
The real benefits of onboarding include forging a lasting relationship with a new employee and speeding their time to competency and productivity with the organization is the goal. Without appropriate onboarding practices, a new hire’s success with an organization becomes a much more “sink-or-swim” proposition. Increasing speed to competence and productivity must be key features of any onboarding program.
Benefits of attending the onboarding seminar include learning:
- Methods to align onboarding and leadership development programs
- Practices to ensure the quality of new hire curricula, so knowledge and skills can begin on day one
- Tactics for putting forward-looking development plans in place to help employees understand the vision for their future in the organization
- How to leverage technology to ensure new hires are automatically streamed into appropriate development and orientation programs
- Techniques to connect new employees through learning and social learning programs
- Develop appropriately blended onboarding experiences including online learning, classroom learning, or social learning through peer to peer formats
