Making It Real: Six Key Steps for Winning with On-Boarding Program Redesign Efforts
02 June, 2009 | (01 hr)
Often seen as a process to assimilate new hires, on-boarding can be a tool for knowledge transfer, engagement, retention, and development. The war for talent may have calmed down due to the current economic climate. However, the lull in hiring, and thus on-boarding execution, combined with feedback from exit interviews, creates an excellent opportunity to reassess existing programs. The current talent pool has also created opportunities for organizations to bolster their human capital resources. This webcast shows participants how to integrate those new, and often untraditional recruits in a way that promotes long-term careers and avoids investment in those looking for an employment "stop-gap." In this webcast, participants will learn about the key pillars, phases, and design and implementation steps for an effective on-boarding program that is aligned with business strategy. Participants will also learn about opportunities to build the business case for world-class on-boarding that allows for critical leadership buy-in.
This webcast will discuss:
- Key on-boarding phases from the offer acceptance to the end of the first year.
- Four on-boarding "pillars" and specific best practices associated with each.
- Central steps from the diagnostic, solution conceptualization, and blueprinting through the detailed design, piloting and roll-out.
- Opportunities and challenges to build the business case for on-boarding.
