When is the last time you were a new employee? The experience is a little frightening, anxiety-inducing, exciting, and filled with hope and enthusiasm. If you think about it, it's a lot like going on a first date. The employee will wonder if they have made the right decision by joining their new company, they will hope there is a bright future with the company, and they hope their expectations are going to be met. These are the same thoughts and feelings you feel when you go on that first date.
The key in both cases is to turn the enthusiasm into engagement. Enthusiasm is fleeting. Engagement stands the test of time. Too often in our organizations we fail at this. We oversell the opportunity, we fail to prepare for the new employee's arrival, and we don't properly train the employee so they can contribute. It's no surprise that when these failures occur enthusiasm evaporates and the new employee is second guessing their decision.
In this webinar, Modern Survey's President, Don MacPherson, will discuss the importance of new employee onboarding, share onboarding horror stories, talk about whose responsibility it is to onboard employees, and lay out a series of best practices that can be put in place to make the onboarding experience extraordinary for every new employee at your organization. After all, the goal is to turn the enthusiasm new employees have into engagement and a love the employee has for their new company. Tune into this webinar and we will help you fix the onboarding process at your organization...fixing the issues on first dates will have to be reserved for another day!
