New Hire Training Can be Fun, Engaging, and Reflect Your Company Culture

Does your onboarding program bring employees together? Does it reflect your company culture? Do people leave training excited and ready to ramp? New hire training is the opportunity for your organization to prove to employees they made the right choice by joining your business. It’s the time to demystify any worries, increase excitement, welcome them to the organization, and prepare them for success.
With that as the backdrop, there is a growing necessity to address the needs of the ever-distracted learner. Every nine seconds, we ask ourselves, “Is this a good use of my time?” With so many distractions, it’s a ever-changing juggling act to grab and keep someone’s attention, while still ensuring they are learning along the way!
During this session you will learn solid approaches to designing your new hire curriculum to:
• Wrap your new hire training (outside of just classroom time) to ensure you inject company culture throughout the process
• Increase retention by using modern gamification aligned with learning objectives
• Diversify and keep learning fun through microlearning chunks
