The First 30 Days

The First 30 Days

Ever wonder how your newest associates are really treated during their first 30 days on the job? Sure, you have an idea. But would you believe that somewhere in your company a brand new associate was just….

– Scheduled to start on a Saturday with only 4 hours of training or…

– Issued a used, unwashed smock previously worn by a chain smoker or…

– Scheduled to work 3 straight evenings without a trained supervisor or…

– Told to mop the restrooms without any trainings on her first night or…

– Told to wear a name badge with the name of someone else because the P-Touch machine was broken or…

– Introduced to the store manager…3 weeks after being hired?

This session will showcase the good, the bad, and the very ugly ways we introduce new associates to our world. You’ll see that we are more the culprits than the victims when it comes to new associate turnover.

This session will show you the importance of evaluating your new associate orientation program and how to make the early phase of their relationship with your company infinitely more positive. It is ideal for senior managers as well as middle managers responsible for recruiting and developing new associates.
