Published on

With the economy turning around, many growing companies are starting to recruit talented new employees. That means a lot of first days on the job and a lot of time and money to spend while new employees get up to speed. What if you could lessen the time it takes for an employee to reach his or her full potential?

According to a study by Aberdeen Group, effective on-boarding improves retention rates by 52%, time to productivity by 60% and overall customer satisfaction by 53%.

In this webinar, we'll discuss five ways to accelerate the time it takes to get a new employee up to speed, which includes:

Planning ahead.
Integrating company goals and culture
Outlining expectations, goals and success criteria
Utilizing technology and online training
Involving managers
