Getting new employees up to speed on the culture, processes, and knowledge base of a company can cost up to 30% of a new hire’s annual salary. Meanwhile, most employees perform at only a quarter of their full productivity for the first month in their role - unsurprising given that many companies dedicate only a week or less to onboard employees.

Your business can’t afford an onboarding bottleneck. Optimizing your onboarding process can help reduce early turnover by as much as 25% and save the nearly $11,000 it costs to fill a new vacancy. Not only does strategic onboarding save money, it helps boost revenue by quickly ramping new hires to peak productivity. 

To remain competitive in a cutthroat market, L&D decision-makers must standardize, optimize, and accelerate employee onboarding and training so that new hires become productive and add value as soon as possible.

In this webinar, you’ll discover industry trends, case studies, and the essential strategies you need to achieve onboarding excellence. We’ll discuss: 
  • The bottlenecks of business onboarding
  • 7 reasons employee training and onboarding fails
  • 5 strategies to optimize and accelerate onboarding with video
  • Your checklist for optimized onboarding
