    How to produce Rockstars and Accelerate Business Results




    Virtual work has challenged onboarding strategy and employee experience (EX) in many ways. This session will focus on how to take an individualistic approach and become a 5-star employer of choice. 


    As HR Professionals, our responsibility is to recognize and foster the gifts our employees bring to the organization that will drive bottom line results. Learn how mindful onboarding will foster Rockstar performance and accelerate employee’s ability to make a positive and significant impact on the organization.


    This session will cover low cost/no cost strategies with high impact results. As HR Professionals we can implement World Class onboarding with a little TLC; Touchpoints, Leveraging internal resources, and Connections.


    We will examine the employee lifecycle with a fresh perspective and offer Tools & Templates to customize your own 5-star experience as a Talent Magnet. At the end of this session you will learn how to create a 5-star onboarding process that will drive business results, learn how to influence all levels of an organization to participate, and replicate and scale the process.

    4: The benefits of monitoring your programs progress


    Please join us as Stephanie offers tips, guidance and actionable takeaways on how to implement a “5-Star Onboarding Experience” that will accelerate business results and nurture good employees into Rockstar Employees. By creating meaningful touchpoints with your employees, learn how you can replicate and scale a process for leveraging all levels within your organization to nurture connections to drive results.


    HR Leaders know they must make it easier and more efficient for new hires to connect to their work and their peers. Yet how do you measure the success of the program? Learn this and more from Stephanie on how a mindful onboarding experience transforms the lens of HR to an ally and strategic player.
