    Join HR expert Glenna Hecht of Humanistic Consulting for a 20-minute WebBlast that delves into what business owners of every size can do better in the first 30 days of a new hire’s employment.

    In a tight labor market — when employees have plenty of options — the first impression you make on new team members has never been more important. According to Equifax Workforce Solutions, more than 40 percent of turnover happens within an employee’s first month; another 10 percent of workers leave before their first anniversary.

    How do you buck that trend and ensure your new employees receive the welcome and the resources they need to be successful (and stick around)? A strategic approach to onboarding can help!

    Join HR expert Glenna Hecht of Humanistic Consulting for a 20-minute WebBlast that delves into what business owners of every size can do better in the first 30 days of a new hire’s employment.

    The session, which includes 10 minutes of QA with Hecht, builds on Part I of our HR Summer Boot Camp series (“Hire Smarter”) and promises to deliver practical tips you can implement right away.

    You’ll learn:

    • Tips on the materials and resources you should have prepped for new hires, before they even walk in the door.
    • Advice on how to structure an employee’s first 30 days — and what not to do.
    • Common mistakes employers make every day that turn off new hires and hurt your business.
