Once recruited and hired, how does an employee who just walked through your company’s doors become satisfied with their new job, perform better, be all in (engaged) and have a lower intent to quit? This can be done by developing and implementing a highly effective new employee onboarding program.

There are a variety of approaches to onboarding new team members based on an organization’s culture.

The goal of a great onboarding program should be to introduce foundational elements that employees can build on throughout their career — those that influence their performance over decades, not quarters. In fact, studies have shown that onboarding activities lead to positive outcomes for new employees. These include higher job satisfaction, better job performance, greater organizational commitment (high engagement and less "quiet quitting") and reduction in occupational stress and intent to quit.

In this 90-minute live online coaching experience, attendees will gain the instructions and tools needed to create an effective onboarding program in a company. Learning topics include:

  • The four pillars of a great onboarding program
  • The five questions to answer for every new employee to have a successful onboarding program and better ensure their success
  • The new employee onboarding checklist and how to implement it right away
