Employee turnover across all sectors of the economy is at levels not previously seen. There is a complex equation of factors that causes this turnover, not least of which include:

• Pressures and demands on business to attract, hire and retain workers

• Social media, job shopping websites; gig economy workers, side hustles

• Housing shortages

• Covid death toll and effects of long Covid

• Shortage of critical trade skills; deficit of communication skills (read/write)

Our Post Covid economic recovery is a wild ride of financial turmoil, inflationary pressures, interest rate hikes, Russian aggression in eastern Europe, supply chain issues, fuel price gouging, etc.

In other words, UNCERTAINTY is the new normal. The motivation for a person to change their job can range from ‘micro- to macro’.

A couple of bucks an hour. Improved benefits. Signing Bonus. Friends & family pressures. Reduced commute. Etc.

When the new person(s) start on the job, the requirement to get them started ‘on the right foot’ is more important now than at any time before. Getting it right can make a huge difference,  since ‘first impressions’ matter so much.

This webinar will deconstruct the on-boarding process, and highlight the dos’ and don’ts for the average business

Why Should You Attend:

Federal OSHA requires that all employees receive a minimum awareness orientation for safety and health in their work place. The employer is directly responsible for providing this. Ther process is nominally called a ‘Safety Orientation’ or 'Onboarding'. Most companies do a fair to average job on this. Regrettably, a lot of companies get a ‘fail’ on it, for doing little to nothing.

It is not a particularly complex process. There are a few techniques in the discussion that can help streamline the exercise.
