Learn How Recruiters and Hiring Execs Can Help New Employees Take Charge, Build Their Teams, and Get Great Results in Record Time.
NOVATO, Calif. (November 7, 2012) -- It's proven that 40 percent of new hires fail within the first 18 months, often due to mistakes made by the new hires and the companies in the first days and weeks of employment. In the next Experts Connection™ for Recruiters webinar (http://www.experts-connection.com/recruiters.aspx), "On-Boarding: Get Your New Employees Up To Speed in Half the Time," George Bradt, author of The New Job 100-Day Plan, will share his secrets for helping Fortune 500 executives be more effective corporate leaders from day one. The Experts Connection for Recruiters session is scheduled for Thursday, November 15, from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. ET, (1:00 - 2:30 p.m. PT), and is sponsored by NETSHARE® (http://www.netshare.com).
Bradt has developed a three-phase approach that recruiters and hiring managers can apply to help new employees be effective faster than anyone ever expected. Much like orchestrating a show, these phases are 1) Producing - assembling the resources required for success, including aligning the stakeholders around the onboarding plan; 2) Directing - co-creating a Personal Onboarding Plan to clarify expectations and interdependencies; and 3) Stage Managing - making sure the new hire has what he or she needs from day one and adjusting along the way.
Drawing from his expertise in working with Fortune 500 companies, Bradt will explain:
- How to create an onboarding timeline and recruiting brief, and aligning stakeholders around those plans.
- How to help others deliver by supporting a new employee's Personal Onboarding Plan.
- Managing the new hire announcement and proactively introducing new employees.
- Providing the right resources and support to help new employees accelerate and adjust along the way.
"Onboarding is always tricky, but George's work with Fortune 500 companies has taught him what works and what doesn't when it comes to bringing on new executives. His integrated onboarding approach has reduced the executive failure rate from 40 percent to 10 percent, which is pretty impressive," said Katherine Simmons, CEO of NETSHARE and host of the Experts Connection. "We are fortunate to be able to share his expertise with recruiters through this Experts Connection webinar."
