 Is your hiring and on-boarding process costing you unnecessarily? Did you know….

  • Nearly 1/3 of people are job searching within six months of employment
  • Almost 1/3 of externally hired executives miss expectations in the first two years
  • With 10-15% annual attrition, companies lose about 60% of their entire talent base within four years.


Introducing an on-boarding program in to your hiring process can mean the difference between retaining top employees or watching them walk out the door after several months. Companies who implement an effective on-boarding program during the first three months of the new hire employment experience, will have 31% less turnover than those who don’t according to the Aberdeen Group.

On-boarding is important because it introduces the employee to the company’s culture and expectations and gives the employee the vital training and information needed to succeed in their new position. Also a new hire’s compatibility or culture fit will likely be determined during the on-boarding process. This can save the employer from a prolonged investment into the wrong person. 

A strategic on-boarding plan can dramatically impact your business. Investing in an on-boarding process will help reduce turnover and increase new hire effectiveness. An on-boarding program isn’t just or more than a routine checklist; it should be a comprehensive process that makes the new employee as well as the company confident they made the right choice and confident they can succeed in their new job.

Course Objectives:

Robust on-boarding programs help your talent get up to speed faster and deter them from leaving for greener pastures. These 6 points will be covered:

  • Learn six mistakes to avoid in your new hire on-boarding process
  • Review best practices in executive on-boarding accelerating executive success
  • Understand three on-boarding approaches to integrate the new hire into their job and organization
  • Review an on-boarding 90 day timeline with key tasks and tools to measure goals and milestones
  • Identify the top derailers for the critical stakeholders: the manager, the new leader, human resources
  • Learn from focus groups what new leaders consider the top on-boarding issues and ways to ensure success

Course Outline:

You’ve made your decision about whom to hire.  You’ve gotten them excited about their new job. You’re excited about what they can bring to your team. Now what?

If you’re like most good organizations, you’re doing something more. The Aberdeen Group reported that 70 percent of all organizations currently deploy some sort of onboarding program with leaders entering new roles. While this is a good thing, there is great variability in the focus, depth and length of these programs.  The most superficial tend to provide surface-level “meet and greets” and focus on initial paperwork and process knowledge.  Others go deeper, focusing on helping leaders learn to navigate the organization’s culture and understand the informal organization and key players. 

What does yours do? And do you even have an onboarding program?

Also, don’t forget internal transfers. Though onboarding usually focuses on people new to an organization, your current leaders entering new roles need assistance as well. Organizations are made up of many micro-cultures and the informal culture (how things really get done) is what typically drives an organization.  Unwritten rules and politics, if not openly discussed, will create obstacles and slow execution.

Remember, you never get a second chance to make a good first impression.  On-boarding isn’t just about facts; it’s about feeling, too.  Effective on-boarding programs provide an experience which helps new hires and leaders affirm that they made the right career move.  This webinar will cover what you need to ensure your organization is building a stable, committed productive workforce from the start.
