"SHIFTING FROM NEW HIRE FAILURE TO NEW HIRE MOMENTUM "
==========================================================================

What do you think of when you hear the word "onboarding?"

Most of us think of "onboarding" as "orientation" which often involves completing mounds of paperwork!

Contrary to popular belief, orientation is not onboarding! Rather, it is the way in which new employees acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors to become effective organizational members. A successful onboarding integrates a new employee into the social network of an organization and its culture and assists him or her with the performance aspects of the role.

Research has supported the idea that effective onboarding can have a dramatic effect on job performance and satisfaction, organizational commitment, and retention. It is important to make sure the relationship starts off on the right foot, since the first experiences of a new employee in your organization are critical.

Participant Learning Objectives:
- Recognize the link between onboarding and return on investment
- Ascertain the value of socialization and mentorship in new employee onboarding
- Discover the elements of effective onboarding programs
- Determine how you can use a checklist to achieve better onboarding

"BUILD AN EFFECTIVE AND SUSTAINABLE VETERAN RECRUITMENT PROGRAM WITH LIMITED RESOURCES" ==========================================================================

Does Your HR Department Have Limited Recruitment Resources?

A challenge for many organizations when hiring, in general, is how to find and retain the right candidate. When attempting to pursue talented veterans, the added challenge becomes how to translate particular military experience into non-military roles.

One step to address these recruitment challenges is with a proper "veteran ready" assessment in your organization. Another step is to determine effective resources to help you identify candidates. An equally critical step for success, is to address how to best onboard and retain that highly sought veteran.

This program is part of a Texas based program sponsored by Texas Association of Business, NextOps Veterans and Texas SHRM to provide employers with streamlined means to create effective and sustainable veteran/reservist recruitment programs for mid-size to small employers.

Participant Learning Objectives:
- Assess how and where veterans best fit in the organization
- Clarify how to build an effective veteran talent acquisition program
- Identify what an effective onboarding program may look like
- Establish how to turn this talent acquisition effort into an evergreen talent pool
