6 Steps to Onboarding Success: How to Lock in Retention in the First 90 Days

New Hire

How do you handle employees' first few hours … first few days … and first few weeks on the job? Do you simply throw new hires to the wolves with a "sink or swim” message?

More than half of Millennials plan to look for a new job this year because their expectations of their current job contrasted so greatly with their actual experience. That's why having a real onboarding strategy is so important. Consider this shocking fact:

Employees who participate in a structured onboarding program are 69% more likely to remain with the company after three years than those who do not.

On Thursday, March 26, join us for this engaging, dynamic webinar that will give you a practical, step-by-step 90-day plan to welcome employees, get them up to speed and help them become fully engaged. The result: Better performance and stronger retention.
