We have all been told at some point in our life that it is important to make a good first impression. That rule of thumb not only applies to individuals, it also applies to organizations. It is crucial that organizations know how new employees view them from the beginning. Poor planning and sub-par onboarding not only negatively impact productivity, they can shatter an organization’s recruitment and retention efforts; ultimately affecting overall success. To avoid this downward spiral, organizations need to be proactive in their approach to onboarding and look at adopting new practices and technology that will help them achieve positive results.

As an industry leading provider of assessment solutions, Profiles International enables organizations to select the right people and develop them to their full potential. Profiles can offer solutions that help organizations screen-out unsuitable candidates, match jobs with inherent capabilities, understand the strengths and limitations of successful onboarding, enhance performance, and maximize a candidate’s contribution to the organization.

We are excited to announce Best Practices for Improving Workplace Productivity and Organizational Performance, a complimentary webinar presented by John Bradford, Senior VP of Profiles International Consulting and Coaching Services, and Philip Shuler, VP Enterprise Solutions Services at Profiles International. In this 50-minute webinar Bradford and Shuler will combine current research, conducted in 2012, with insights from their many clients worldwide, to define criteria of Best-in-Class (BIC) companies. BIC companies retained 86% of first year employees, as well as, had 77% of those employees meet performance milestones on time. Hiring managers in BIC companies also achieved a 20% year-over-year improvement in hiring manager satisfaction.

Do you want your organization to reach Best-in-Class status? The webinar will present material on ways that you can :

-minimize the time it takes an employee to reach full-productivity
-create a positive and productive onboarding experience
-give new employees a head start
-have employees effectively work with their manager and team

Onboarding has become a business initiative, not just a talent initiative. Participation in this webinar will provide valuable information on how you can transform your new-hire orientations into strategic initiatives, and how you can leverage technology to boost engagement, productivity, and retention.

All webinar participants will receive a complimentary copy of 40 Strategies for Winning in Business and an exclusive 4-week Onboarding and Productivity Best Practices email series.
