Session Details
Session-1: RECRUITMENT: Hire the Best Candidate with Smart Interviewing
Time: 10am – 11am | Duration: 60 minutes

Have you ever hired someone who did not live up to expectations? Are you selecting too many round pegs to fit into square holes?

Hiring the wrong person for the job is like asking a rabbit to swim. Rabbits may swim for a short stint, but eventually they will start to struggle, get frustrated, and quit. This is what happens when you hire a candidate for a position that is not a good fit. Poor-fit employees eat up time and energy and weaken the entire team. It is a lot easier—and much more productive—to hire rabbits to run and fish to swim.

In this session, you will learn the essentials of smart interviewing so that you hire the right person, at the right time, with the right skills, for the right position.

This session will teach you to:

Q/A + Break: 20 minutes
Session-2: ONBOARDING: Get New Hiring Quickly Up to Speed and Productive
Time: 11:15am – 12:15 pm | Duration: 60 minutes

You have made your hiring decision, and you’re excited about what the new employee can bring to your team. Now what?

It’s time to onboard the new hire, with a thorough introduction to your company’s culture and organization—as well as expectations of the position. Onboarding is not just about handshakes, some quick orientation program, and lots of paperwork. It is an opportunity to give the employee the vital training and departmental information needed to succeed in their new position. Onboarding is not just a routine checklist; it should be a comprehensive process that sets the new employee up for success in the new role. Remember, a robust onboarding program will help reduce turnover and increase new hire effectiveness.

This session will teach you to:

  • Recognize the difference between orientation and onboarding: They are not the same, and you need both
  • Master the four C’s of an effective onboarding program: compliance, clarification, culture, connections
  • Use a toolbox of 6 real-world best practices for implementing an onboarding program in your organization
  • Understand the responsibilities of 3 key stakeholders: Executive management, Human Resources, and the new hire’s manager
  • Recognize the key role of managers in onboarding success
  • Answer the 5 key questions new employees commonly ask (if you can’t, you risk disengagement)
Q/A + Break: 20 minutes
Session-3: RETENTION: Engage and Retain Your Top Talent (Especially Millennials)
Time: 12:30pm – 1:30pm | Duration: 60 minutes

A recent Harvard Business Review article, “How to Keep Your Top Talent,” warns that 25% of your best employees plan to jump ship in the next year. It goes on to say that one in three millennial employees admit to not putting all their effort into their jobs. This should be alarming to companies who believe that their competitiveness relies on the passion, drive, and creative energy of their talented people.

This session presents two cutting-edge and cost-effective programs to add to your employee engagement and retention toolbox. First, with “stay interviews,” you learn and then act on the factors that are influencing employees’ decisions to remain and contribute (or to start looking for greener pastures). Second, with intrapreneurship, you provide opportunities for your skilled talent—including eager millennials—to utilize their innovative and problem-solving abilities to continue to have impact and stay committed.

The session will teach you to:

  • Identify 5 key factors that impact your top talent’s desire to stay—or leave
  • Recognize 4 possible “triggers” that cause employees to quit
  • Use 8 engagement and retention strategies to increase loyalty and commitment
  • Conduct “stay interviews” to quickly reveal employees’ motivators and de-motivators
  • Use 5 management techniques to improve communication (especially with millennials)
  • Rely on real-world best practices of intrapreneurship programs (see how large, medium, and small companies maximize their time and resource investments)
