Workplace Application: This session will show you how and why great onboarding strategies can help your organization avoid lagging productivity, embarrassing mistakes and costly turnover.

Onboarding is the ultimate “teachable moment”–new hires are excited and eager to learn. A great onboarding program for new employees is essential in helping them succeed in their jobs. Aligning company values and passion with the right delivery method is critical to making it unforgettable and preparing employees for success. Companies need to avoid the “one size fits all” onboarding approach, personalize the experience and take advantage of digital skills common to this new generation of hires.

Todd Hudson


With more than 20 years of industrial engineering and plant management experience at European, Chinese and US-owned companies in a variety of industries, he’s seen just about everything the business world can throw at you. From frenetic growth and high volume, to cutting out fat, cutting into muscle and cutting your own throat.

Todd is a long-time lean operations practitioner and six sigma black belt. He’s started up a billion-dollar semiconductor fab, improved factory performance so it just hums along, integrated operations after mergers and acquisitions and outsourced production overseas laying off hundreds of employees and closing plants.

In 2000, Todd started the Maverick Institute to pioneer the application of lean production principles to training and development. Throughout his career, Todd’s seen that effective knowledge transfer and sharing of expertise are critical elements to success.
