Get Your Employees off to a Running Start! Motivate and Retain Employees through Effective On-boarding Practices.

Have you ever been the "new kid on the block", figuratively speaking? Perhaps as the newest driller, or production operator, R&D executive, field service tech, petroleum engineer, refinery specialist or safety manager in the company, you were on your own because your supervisor had a day off or called in sick on your first day. You may not have known anyone on the first day, or you felt apprehensive because you weren't sure you made the right decision by leaving your old employer for a new one. Perhaps you weren't sure what you were supposed to be doing once hired. It's completely natural to have these feelings on your first day at a new job, and you aren't alone in feeling them. Most new employees experience these same feelings, but that doesn't mean they should have to.

This is where an efficient on-boarding process comes into play. It's important for employers to ensure that new employees are adequately oriented to their new work environment. The key is an on-boarding process that helps new hires experience their new job as a major turn on!

Unfortunately, many companies often act in ways that create the opposite effect. As a manager, supervisor, or HR personnel, it's your responsibility to see to it that everyone who joins your department or team feels valued, accepted and secure. It's especially important that new employees get the support they need and remain motivated to work for you, especially when highly skilled people in your industry are difficult to find and keep. The energy industry is no different from other industries when facing the challenges of finding and retaining highly skilled people. Help your staff from maintenance technicians, well service and testing employees, construction managers, to R&D personnel, managers, engineers, geologists, HR managers and companywide employees get off to a fast and efficient start!

This fast-paced, high-content webinar, by expert speaker Carol Hacker, loaded with how-to tips, will teach you how to successfully lead a team of new employees by beginning with one of the most beneficial tools you have to get them off on the right foot - on-boarding.

This session will give you practical ideas to make your new-hire orientation more than an event, and you will learn how to make everything you do valuable and worth everyone's time. Carol will discuss what it takes to get everyone mentally on-board and committed to you, the department and the company.

It's the responsibility of ALL your employees, not just HR, to make new employees feel welcome and get them off to a good start. It's an on-going process that requires making a commitment to do whatever it takes. Investing time and money in your new employees will directly impact your bottom line and pay dividends for years to come!
