Episode 26,   Mar 09, 2023, 02:30 PM

You only get one chance to make a first impression!

According to The Society for Human Resource Management, 75% of employees don’t have a clear understanding of what to expect on their first day of work. How can we expect employees to do a good job when we haven’t shown them the job? 

Onboarding isn’t just about paperwork (though that’s an important part!). Ben & Danny outline an employee training process that fosters confidence and personal connection and creates a deeper company culture for the entire workplace. Plus, they share their own new job experiences - including one horror story & one onboarding fit for VIPs!
