Millennial Employment & Onboarding
The Millennial Employment and Onboarding course is recommended for those managers or companies who are employing Millennials and want to successfully integrate them into the business. On-boarding of new employees is a secure investment that will assist newly hired employees to implement their skills , knowledge and value within the company. More than ever, millennials - those born between 1980 and 1995 - are entering the workforce and becoming a vital part of our organizations. These workers bring a unique outlook on life to their jobs, and may also pose unique challenges.
Millennial On-boarding is a specialized type of employee on-boarding. With Millennials we are seeing a need to tweak the on-boarding process to better suit the needs of the company and new hires. It will increase productivity and produce a happier and more skilled workforce. The new hire phase is a critical time for the employee and company and having a structured set of procedures will make this time run smoother and produce a greater chance of success.
Taking time to customize the on-boarding process for millennial employees helps promote employee retention and ensures that millennials are properly socialized into the workplace. Customizing the on-boarding process for millennial employees benefits both the employee and the workplace.
At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
· Define on-boarding
