Effective Onboarding

As a manager, you work hard to find and hire the right person. Once you make the hire, it would be nice to let HR take over and catch your breath. But you know that the first 90 days will determine their success.

Recruiting is expensive and sales organizations cannot afford to lose employees they have worked to successfully recruit and hire. A comprehensive onboarding program has emerged as the best way to combat expensive turnover with new employees.

Improve Your Onboarding Efforts

To help managers improve their onboarding efforts, we’ve created a stand-alone course on Effective Onboarding. The concepts are taken from our more comprehensive Talent Focused Management Series.

After completing this course:

  • You will be better equipped to prepare your new hire to succeed.
  • You will learn effective ways to share your expectations and set your priorities with your new hires.
  • You will identify several actions you can take to improve your onboarding strategy.
