    We only get one first day and for an engaged workplace that day sets the stage for an employee's career with that organization.  Onboarding is not just about government paperwork.  Onboarding needs to have a structured plan that delivers on your employee promise on day one.

    Participants should leave this program with an understanding of a better structure for onboarding new employees. This structure includes breaking down barriers on day one; relationship building as a core building block; taking the time to discuss a development plan; and making new employees feel as comfortable and celebrated on their first day of work.

    For Human Resources professionals looking for a better way to onboard new employees this will be a great program that provides a series of best practices to consider implementing to improve new employee orientation. Not everything will work in every organization, but the ideas and concepts are applicable to any company of any size or type. If you want better onboarding that makes a significant impact on your new employees this program will be relevant to you.

    Please RSVP your intention by noon on April 6th to Amanda Paustian at
