Ready, Set, GO! Onboarding that Builds Excitement, Even Before Day 1 - PORT OF PORTLAND

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

You’ve recruited employees with your careers website. You’ve retained them with your corporate culture. But creating that smooth transition from recruitment to retention requires an onboarding program that engages and excites them, even before Day 1.

Discover how you can drive excitement from the start, including how to:

  • Improve efficiency, utilizing an onboarding tool to allow applicants to complete I-9s, W-2s, benefits selections and other critical paperwork in advance instead of on the first day
  • Design, recruit and implement a "buddy" program that gives new hires a resource for questions and a sounding board for concerns
  • Craft a welcome gift that reflects your brand, organizational values and team spirit...and is worthy of sharing on social media
  • Take a cue from the world of higher education, see how to create the “fat envelope” feeling, ramping up excitement and anticipation in the weeks leading up to the first day
