We discuss employee engagement a lot don’t we? We realize there are benefits to our organizations when we have a highly engaged workforce; things like improved performance, higher productivity, and improved retention.
Across the continuum of the employee life cycle there are numerous touch points and multiple opportunities for us to focus on strategies that address our desired outcomes. And the onboarding of employees is one of those times.
But how do we tackle it? How do we improve the onboarding experience, ensure it’s aligned with our company’s business objectives, and measure success? What are key talent metrics? And how, if you’re considering revamping your onboarding program, do you get from here…to there?
Join me next Thursday (2/26/2015) for “Drivers of Engagement in New Hire Onboarding” when I’ll be part of a panel discussing the essential elements of high-performance onboarding, key practices for gauging impact, and the importance of talent technology.
Hosted by cfactor Works Inc. (developer of Vibe HCM suite) and Brandon Hall Group, a leading HCM research and advisory services firm, and will feature, in addition to me, a whole bunch of smart people:
- Shannon Kirk, Vice President of People, Organizational Development & Infrastructure at California Pizza Kitchen
- Will Staney, Head of Global Talent Acquisition at Twilio
- Kyle Lagunas, Talent Acquisition Analyst at Brandon Hall Group
- Cary Schuler, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of cfactor.
I promise we’ll have a great discussion and share some interesting information, so go here to register and join us.
Onward to onboarding!
