Description:

Every development shop works hard to hire great employees. Yet onboarding these new employees can feel like an overwhelming task even though we all know that it is crucial for long-term success. Learn how one organization developed an onboarding program to ensure new hires are quickly engaged and have a solid foundation to become superstars. Presenters will cover planning for your new employee’s arrival, onboarding resources and training strategies for their first 30, 60 and 90 days on the job, and the continued follow-up necessary to foster a highly functioning and fully integrated new member of the team. They will share a creative toolbox of sample templates including: an onboarding checklist, first week/month schedule, ‘How-To’ training documents and bookmarks, a visual directory concept, motivational team meeting ideas, and more!
