You’ve recruited employees with your careers website. You’ve retained them with your corporate culture. But creating that smooth transition from recruitment to retention requires an onboarding program that engages and excites them, even before Day 1.
Lise Harwin of the Port of Portland will help you:
- Taking a cue from the world of higher education, create the “fat envelope” feeling, ramping up excitement and anticipation in the weeks leading up to the first day.
- Get ideas for crafting welcome swag that reflects your brand, organizational values and team spirit…and is worthy of sharing on social media.
- Learn how to design, recruit and implement a “buddy” program that gives new hires a resource for questions and a sounding board for concerns.
