Ready For Takeoff: New “Flyer” orientation lifts engagement

Every new hire is an opportunity to better your engagement statistics. The early stages of new hires’ employment essentially set them up for success—or failure. Poor early employment experience can instigate or aggravate an epidemic of disengagement. Result: costly high turnover rates. Want to retain the talent you recruit? A positive experience is absolutely critical. Our motto is… “Now that we’ve found them, we want to keep them!”

Key Takeaways:

  • Combine relationship building, information sharing and business education to ease a new hire’s journey from the beginning to producing value
  • Use targeted follow up to turn warning signs into action plans
  • Exploit executive communication to educate and connect
  • Get engagement through consistent orientation and assimilation experiences
  • Apply the key elements of the success formula to your organization (welcoming, connecting, expectations, knowledge)
