What is the difference between on-boarding and orientation?  Do you have a process for the first 30, 60 and 90 days? Is on-boarding considered just an “HR” function?  The quality of a new employee’s introduction and acclimation to their new company, job and co-workers is directly related to their productivity and retention during their first year on the job.

In TrainSMART’s On-Target On-Boarding Training For Managers you and your group will earn the critical elements of an effective on-boarding program that will decrease turnover, engage new employees and improve accountability in this one day, interactive workshop.

You will leave this session with a plan for success!
