1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST

Event Description
Presenter: Bill Ryan, Founder & Principal Consultant, Ryan Consulting, LLC

Remember your first day at the new job?  Remember the data dump of benefits, medical plans, payroll and tax forms, CEO's video, amazing day, right?  And then email was working, your supervisor's ready to talk and get you oriented to everything, right?  With the transition to a remote workforce this is the opportunity to reach out and begin the process by engaging the person in advance of their start date whether they're new or an existing employee moving to a new role. A structured onboarding program is key to the person's long-term success and involves a strategic long-term plan. 
In this session I will share a process that combines tactical training targeted around the needs of the role using the 4 'C's' +1 model that centers on constant communication, feedback, and performance measurement - all factors that impact employee retention and engagement.  We'll explore the employee lifecycle for mentoring and development and how connecting people together builds the internal network and supports collaboration.  Onboarding is more than a 1 and done session, it's a process that prepares people to be successful for the long-term performance.
