Loose Cannon or Linchpin? Onboarding for New-Manager Success

2021 Talent Conference & Expo
Attendees will learn how to create an onboarding program that turns good employees into great leaders.

Harvard Business Review reports that the average manager is in the position for 12 years before receiving management training. At the same time, Gallup polls show that the No. 1 reason employees leave a company is because of their manager. Considering these two facts, how much money could your company save simply by training your managers at the very beginning? This session will discuss how you can increase your company's retention, engagement and profit by delivering a dynamic onboarding experience for new managers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn four critical components to a successful onboarding program.
  • Discover the reasons managers fail.
  • Learn the four skills managers need to acquire to become great leaders.
  • Learn how to create a manager onboarding program that increases profit.
