About the session

Hiring and onboarding new employees to your team is all too often treated as an afterthought, or best case, as an at-the-moment thought.

Employees deserve a well-thought-out experience that includes them from the very beginning–from the creation of the position description—to that time after they’ve become integrated into our teams and organisations.

We can trace some of these imperfect scenarios all the way back to the creation of our performance profiles or position descriptions, and how they were created. When we understand the entire journey from candidate to employee, we see the value of treating onboarding as an ending of a particular process instead of a solitary event in time.

Participant takeaways:

  • Alternate approaches to identifying the right targets—casting a smarter net, not a wider net, to increase the likelihood of success for your hires
  • Ways to consider engaging and staying engaged with potential and new teammates in your organisation
  • Approaches to onboarding and making the new hire experience more positive for new team members
  • A framework that will help you determine what you want (and don't want) in your next hire
