Skillful Talent Series 103 & 104

Wed 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Facilitated by Denver Metro SBDC

In order to accomplish hiring goals, hiring managers are tempted to select and onboard new hires as fast as possible. This approach often results in a 'sink or swim mentality for onboarding. All too often, organizations rely on outdated checklists to onboard new employees. These processes use a one-size-fits-all approach and make it more difficult for new hires to get up to speed.

When you focus your onboarding on the new hire's skills you can concentrate on any gaps they may have. This customized, structured onboarding approach was found to increase the likelihood that a new hire will stay for three years by 69% according to the SHRM Foundation.

SKILLFUL Talent Series 104 Workshop:

Your company has a 5-year business plan. But does it have a 5-year people management plan? While your business grows, changes, and uses new technology, your employees need to change with it. Creating a workforce plan is crucial for the success of your company to ensure that as your company grows, your employees grow with it.

In SKILLFUL Talent Series 104: Employee Retention, you'll learn how to:

Identify what skills your employee has and what they need to develop Set up a training program to upskill new and current employees Create transparent and inclusive advancement opportunities for employees
