Meeting the onboarding challenges

A forthcoming webinar is set to uncover and examine the latest thinking around onboarding. Hosted by HRD Connect partnering with Arch Apprentices, the webinar will explore the future of onboarding and look at the key challenges that face HR leaders.

No matter how well you think you may be doing, there is always room for improvement. Indeed, it is pretty common for new employees to experience personal ups and downs during the first few months of a job.

As part of a wide-ranging discussion, the webinar will offer attendees the chance to interact with some leading experts from the worlds of business, non-profit, academia and the training industry. In particular, they will focus in on some of the central challenges facing HR, including:

  • Designing an employee-centric onboarding programme that increases Employee Lifetime Value, employee retention and customer satisfaction
  • Development of appropriately blended onboarding experiences that support the multi-generational workforce and that connects new employees, from apprentices to directors, to facilitate early social embeddedness
  • Creating the ultimate targeted experience using technology
  • Partnering with the L&D function to take a truly holistic approach to the overall learning experience of new hires, focusing on that journey for apprentices in the workplace

The speaker line up gives a hint at the expertise that webinar attendees can expect.

Ben Rowland co-founded Arch Apprentices, one of the UK’s leading apprenticeship training providers, back in 2012. Since then he has been one of the most vital voices in the skills debate in the UK.

Having worked with a range of blue chip employers including Facebook and Google, Ben’s work at Arch puts him in the ideal position to comment on the challenges around onboarding – particularly when it comes to developing effective collaboration between employees, candidates and training providers.

Mervyn Dinnen is one of the most interesting observers of the talent and HR landscape. He drew on his twenty years of experience in the field to produce his landmark book, Exceptional Talent, which outlined the challenges facing HR leaders and how they can effectively deliver change and performance.

For Amanda Cliff, “Creating a learning community that makes the difference” is central to her role as the Senior Learning and Development Manager for the Weetabix Food Company. As part of her role, she has focused on identifying and offering a variety of learning initiatives and believes meeting the onboarding challenge is central to equipping Weetabix for the future talent challenges.

Having won the CIPD Recruitment Marketing Award in 2016 for Best In-House Recruitment Team, Andrew Hyland, Recruitment and Resourcing Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support has continued his work on developing great teams and bringing in the best and brightest to an extraordinary organisation.

The webinar is set to take place on 21 November and will also be available on demand after the event. Registration details can be found here.
