As new hires join the workforce from college each year, they need clarity of expectations, support, and the right tools to shorten their learning curve, deliver results, and stay engaged for the long term.

The fact is that today’s graduates want to make their mark in your organization and blaze a career path right from the start.

What You Will Learn

In this Webcast, we will explore the transition between college and the "real" world. Our panel will examine what both recent graduates and organizations need to know to make this transition a success. This includes:
  • Business basics: what recent grads need to know to hit the ground running
  • What motivates recent grads and how to keep them engaged
  • Advice on how organizations should orient newly minted grads
  • What managers need to know to integrate Gen Y into their team
  • And much more

Today’s new hires need more than just a paycheck to keep them committed. Attend this program and discover ways to transition new hires into productive contributors as well as reinvigorate current staff.
