CEU Approved | Free Webinar

  • 90 minutes

Get acquainted with the latest best practices in the process of onboarding a new employee in your organization to boost employee retention, and how onboarding programs help new employees perform remarkably.

For a new employee, the idea of long-term job retention should be placed in his/her mind at the very beginning. After all, you wouldn’t want to lose out on a talented employee, would you? The reality is that about 30% of employees don’t make it past their first year due to improper orientation programs and you know that it’s really expensive to hire new employees over and over again!

New employees in your company should be welcomed with a proper process because your goal as an administrator is to put up the best first impression of your company in their eyes. Conventional Orientation Programs last only a day or two and may seem boring to most employees. This is where onboarding plays a vital role. It begins as a blended learning program over a period of time where the employee learns the ins and outs of your business process in the simplest manner possible. Not only does it boost the productivity of the new employee in the first year of hiring, but it also makes them confident enough to feel welcome in your organization – the first step to successful employee retention!

Key Features of the Conference

Good recruitment and hiring can be quickly undone by disorganized and poorly executed new employee orientation. Research reveals that onboarding boosts the chances of retaining new hires by over 69% for at least 3 years!

Onboarding is a systematic comprehensive onboarding process that boosts the long-term prospects of the new employees you hire. If their orientation is commenced with an effective program, employees can get up-to-speed quicker and stay on the job longer when their first-year experience is well managed.

It can be illustrated with a simple idea – it is the difference between an employee beginning a new job and an employee becoming an intrinsic, invaluable and long-term asset of the business organization. As a business administrator or recruiter, your aim should be to fast-track new employees towards productivity and making them contribute towards the company’s turnover as soon as possible.
