Employee on Boarding

Did you know that most employees decide to leave a job within their first 18 months with an organization? When an employee does leave, it usually costs about three times their salary to replace them.

You can greatly increase the likelihood that a new employee will stay with you by implementing a well-designed on-boarding program that will guide the employee through their first months with the company. This two-day workshop will explore the benefits of on-boarding, show you how to design an on-boarding framework, give you ways to customize the program for different audiences (including managers and executives), and demonstrate how to measure results from the program.
