    The Key to Engage and Retain New Employees

    One of the best strategies for retaining quality talent in today's market is the effectiveness of your interviewing process. In this training, participants will learn how to ask behavioral and situational-based interview question to uncover the key attributes needed for the position you are hiring for. Discussion around "hard" and "soft" skills, as well as, organizational values will be a strong theme in this training. Additionally, participants will learn tips for phone and virtual interviewing and have the opportunity to practice interviewing using the skills learned in this training. 

    In addition to the interview process, onboarding employees well has never been more important than it is right now. We are facing new growth, new ways of conducting business, returning workers, and the need for high retention. The foundation for success lies in a great onboarding plan (and in the case of returning workers a “re-onboarding” plan!).

    Participants will explore:

    • Reasons for doing onboarding well
    • Why new employees leave jobs
    • 6 key steps to onboarding
    • What a first-year template can do for you

    Participants will leave with templates for creating an onboarding plan and instructions for using the templates and each participant will have their first day mapped out.
