Onboarding is Not Orientation: Improving the New Employee Experience

Onboarding is Not Orientation: Improving the New Employee Experience

Duration: 120 Minutes

Faculty: Mike Haberman    Course ID: 1034    Level: Basic to Intermediate


In this webinar we will learn the reasons onboarding is important today. We will learn that the terms orientation and onboarding are not interchangeable. We will learn that orientation is in reality just one step in the onboarding process. We will learn that the onboarding process begins before the hire is made.

Why Should You Attend:

Statistics show that half of all hourly employees leave the job within four months of hire and half of all salaried employees leave their jobs within 18 months. This turnover is expensive. Much of this turnover can be prevented by a proper onboarding process. The Orientation, the process of making someone an employee, is no longer sufficient. When so much of a company’s success is dependent on the intellectual property that employees produce it is critical to make sure that the employee is fitting in and succeeding. This is what a successful onboarding process accomplishes. Those companies that do not do this successfully suffer lower productivity, potential loss of customers, and of course the eventual loss of the employee and the resultant replacement costs
