The people are the greatest asset of any organization. The people’s effort, expertise, and intellectual contributions are key to the organization’s success. Since people are critical to the outcome, it is a significant responsibility for leaders to effectively recruit, on-board, train, and retain the right people for their organization. This presentation will focus on our approach to recruiting, onboarding, and training new staff. We will discuss our approach to seeking candidates, evaluating, and hiring candidates. Once the right candidate is hired, we will then discuss our process for on-boarding and training new employees.

This webinar will focus on the challenges of recruiting, on-boarding, and training staff.
