#GuildChat for 3/8/19 Improving Onboarding

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, March 8th at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is on Improving Onboarding


Onboarding new employees can take many forms and a variety of approaches. Context is always an important consideration as well as need and speed. The goal ultimately for both employee and organization is to get to productivity as quickly as possible.

In this week’s #GuildChat we’ll explore approaches to onboarding and the role technology and design play in effective development. Additionally, we’ll discuss evaluation measures and how to and where to make changes when the businesses changes. If you’re in HR or Management or even a newly on onboarded employee yourself, join the eLearning community to discuss how to improve onboarding this week!
