The cost of ineffective onboarding goes beyond the cost of disengagement and turnover. As anyone who remembers their own new employee experience can attest, ineffective onboarding extends the amount of time it takes to become a productive contributor. Thus, better onboarding means your new employees provide value sooner.

To prevent the engagement decline that occurs after the honeymoon phase of the new hire experience is over, you need to know how you can improve your company’s onboarding process, the new-hire experience, and your new hires’ relationships with their managers.

In this webcast, you will learn:

  • why your new hires probably aren’t telling you the truth—and the price you (and they) pay for it
  • language managers you can use to help engage new hires in constructive conversations that help them gather important information and promote engagement
  • processes you can use—from informal to more structured—that will enable you to gather key information and foster ongoing, open, unguarded conversations between new hires and their hiring managers.

We will describe methods for engaging new employees in honest and open discussions, so you get the critical information you need to onboard your new hires effectively and cultivate high engagement.
