Create a Successful Employee Orientation Program to Improve Employee Retention and Boost Your Company's Bottom Line

Have you decided on the amount of time you want to invest in new-hire on-boarding/orientation? How important do you view building relationships within the organization and helping new employees feel invested in their work? Training and on-boarding prepare employees for their jobs, without it, chances are new hires will not make it past the first few months. On-boarding and training are the two terms that are often used interchangeably, leaving room for misconception of what is really wrong with a new hire's first 90 days on the job.

There are many things that you can do to ensure that your new employees are rightly oriented in their new work environment. Managers/supervisors need to see that everyone joining their department feel accepted, secure and important. All employees must make an effort to get the new people start with a good note, and it is an ongoing process. You need to be committed to it, whatever it takes and you will observe that, the time and money you invest in your new employees will directly impact your bottom line and pay dividends for years to come. Research indicates that simply improving new employee orientation can increase retention rates by as much as 25%.

Probably the most important contribution any HR professional or hiring manager can make for long-term success is a successful orientation program. If you do it right, it will drive and increase your productivity, show positive results, and improve the rates of retention. These are one of the most important 'teachable moments' your organization will ever have.

Serious about retaining your top talent? Understand that since the beginning of the day that the potential employee sets his/her foot in, everything matters. Senior HR consultant and expert speaker Carol Hacker, in this information-packed webinar, will explain the positive effects of welcoming a new employee successfully. A solid 'Welcome Aboard' approach and an emphasis on good start for at least the first two weeks on job can create wonders. Learn how do that effectively here!

Session Highlights:

  • Reducing employee turnover.
  • Setting up the expectation that new employees will hear from you regularly during the normal two - four weeks before the start date.
  • Help new employees feel welcome, relieve anxiety and start the individual toward being a loyal, productive member of your team.
  • Foster pride in working for a company that values its employees and stresses the theme of quality throughout its employment operations.
  • Speed the development and contributory worth of every new team member.
  • Clarify the quality of standards and expectations by which performance will be measured.
  • Empower your employees to be confident. The more confident they are, the faster and more efficiently they will learn.
  • Help reduce "buyer's remorse."
