Onboarding Webinar

It always happens this way.  The day your new employee reports to work, all hell breaks loose.  As badly as you would like to have long and productive training sessions with your new recruit, real life just won’t allow for that scenario.

Most new employees (especially millennials), want to make an immediate impact on the success of your organization.  What holds them back most often is a lack of understanding of the most basic elements of our industry and organizational structure.  This knowledge gap is wider than any of us realize.  Information we regard as “second nature”, is quite frankly a puzzle to most new hires.  Industry jargon, componentry, interdepartmental issues, paper trails, and knowing the right questions to ask when interfacing with a customer are all items that many employees learned by MAKING MISTAKES.  

This session helps to connect these dots, and provide a baseplate of understanding, especially for those that are not from the material handling business.
