You’ve Hired the Best Talent: Don’t Lose Them
Because of Bad Onboarding
Sharlyn Lauby, President, ITM Group Inc.; Author, “HR Bartender” blog
One of every 3 employees quits a job within the first six months. One big reason is ineffective
onboarding programs. The last thing organizations want is to have a new hire leave within the first
year — it’s expensive on many fronts: time, money and resources. It’s time for talent acquisition
professionals to take an active role in elevating the effectiveness of the company’s onboarding
program in terms of how it is designed, implemented and evaluated. Sharlyn Lauby, author of
the book Manager Onboarding: 5 Steps for Setting New Leaders Up for Success, will explain why
you need to get involved in onboarding design, and show you the basic steps to designing an
onboarding program, how to measure onboarding program results and outline post-onboarding
programs that will improve employee retention.
The Everyday Essentials for Recruiters and Sourcers
Ronnie Bratcher, Senior Technical Recruiter/Sourcer, Arete Alliance LLC
Bob Collins, Director of Sourcing and Recruiting Services, Hire4ce Inc.
Here is your chance to learn what separates the best sourcers and recruiters from all the rest.
Sourcing/recruiting experts Ronnie Bratcher and Bob Collins will show you the everyday tools
and processes you should be using to find top passive candidates. You’ll learn how to use a
12-step framework for sourcing that’s designed to empower recruiters to go from the lowest-hanging fruit to the most challenging “purple squirrel,” capture rich resource niche sites and
other important online resources. Plus, they’ll teach you two strategies, “Magic with Natural
Language” and “Peer Regression Search,” that will enable you to find people you never even
knew existed in your own ATS and on LinkedIn and apply the most advanced search techniques
to work on any database, search engine, social network or job board. You’ll never have to rely on
complex Boolean logic and advanced syntax again once you’ve mastered these search hacks.
So You Found Them . . . Now What?
Shally Steckerl, Founder and President, The Sourcing Institute
You’re the world’s greatest sourcer, but that means nothing when you can’t get them to respond.
Sourcing pioneer Shally Steckerl will show you how to combine social media and mobile outreach
tricks with some psychological “people hacks” so you can break free from InMail. You’ll learn
techniques to weave your cold calls, voicemails and emails with new social media outreach
strategies that can increase your call-back ratio by at least 20%. Plus, Shally will take you through
finding the social footprint for many of your candidate prospects so you can expand the way
in which you connect with them, and prioritizing various communication vehicles to get faster
responses. You’ll leave knowing what to include in your social media messages that will increase
the likelihood of generating a positive response, plus learn the values of having your own Facebook
page and LinkedIn group and which types of activities are best for each of the social networks.
