Onboard or Overboard! Employee Retention and Productivity

  • 15 Nov 2018
  • 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
  • Webinar via Zoom

Employees are going overboard, leaving companies at a faster pace than ever before. You work so hard to recruit the right talent and yet 1/3 of employees quit their jobs in just the first six months! One major factor in this is lack of great onboarding. Companies fail to realize the need to reinforce the "buying decision" – yes, onboarding is a key time for new associates to determine if they made the right choice or not.

Join Scott Colehour, Lisa Stortz, and Tonia Morris for a lively discussion and demos from leading organizations that will showcase onboarding to help reinforce the decision of joining your company.


  • What makes great onboarding
  • When onboarding should start
  • How long should onboarding last
  • What about mentors, coaches, supervisors
  • How onboarding can increase new hire productivity

Don’t let your new recruits jump ship! Register today!

Tonia brings workshops and presentations that shine the light of understanding and cooperation to ‘Turn Chaos Into Structure.’ She addresses pressing challenges such as the communication divide, work ethics, employee retention, rewards, and maintaining a positive work environment.

Tonia comes from a human resources background and has researched, collaborated with industry leaders, and led focus groups with hundreds of Millennials to better understand their needs, behaviors, employer expectations, and career desires – and translate that information into working strategies for the new order of working together.

She has worked with organizations in retail, government, education, financial services and information technology to understand the evolving workplace, and replace costly turnover, weak morale and engagement, and a generational disconnect with fresh ideas to help leaders in small-to-medium-size organizations attract, retain, engage, and inspire Millennials in today’s workplace.
