Organizations today face many challenges: a global pandemic; a global recession/depression; dynamic business conditions; and, social upheaval. Onboarding is an important tool to acclimate new hires to their new employer and is a continuing process. Many organizations devote time and attention to onboard so as to slash the unproductive time of new hires to “get up to speed.” But fewer organizations realize that how people are onboarded affects future stay or leave decisions. If care is not taken, employers may discover that their new hires are actually being “trained” by employees with attitude problems. It is thus important to rethink onboarding as a retention method.

Why should you attend?

Recruiting and selecting new hires is very expensive. Employers have to advertise openings, interview candidates, and spend hours in interviewing people.
