Talent Series 103: Selection and On-boarding
It's no secret that, as the region's unemployment rate remains at historic lows, small businesses are struggling to find the skilled talent they need to remain competitive; according to Denver Metro SBDC's recently publishedColorado Small Businesses Survey, more than half of companies with revenue over $500,000 reported that a lack of qualified workers was a challenge to their growth.
That's why we are bringing you the Skillful Talent Series training's, designed to help employers find, hire and train talent with a focus on skills instead of proxies for skills like previous titles and degrees, thereby deepening your companies' talent pools, reducing time to hire and improving retention and diversity.
Struggling to find people with the perfect skill set? Frustrated with the time it takes for new hires get to full productivity?
Onboarding a new hire impacts how and when works get done. Unfortunately, we don't always set the new hire up for success with our onboarding structure. A structured onboarding approach was found to increase the likelihood that a new hire will stay for three years longer than those with an unstructured onboarding process by 69%, according to the SHRM Foundation.
SKILLFUL: Talent Series 103 workshop provides you with a new approach for developing new employees so they get up to speed as quickly as possible - increasing productivity and reducing turnover.
Join us for a workshop that will help fill positions more quickly and improve retention by setting new hires up for success.
