Onboarding in 2021: Helping New Employees Feel Welcome in a Pandemic

Presented by: Gisele Marcus

During the Covid-19 Pandemic there are employees beginning work without traditional face-to-face time with their boss, peers, cross functional teams, and direct reports.

Employee attrition has always been costly, 50-60% of that employee's salary, according to SHRM. Training leaders have a valuable role to play in guarding this expense for their companies.


  • Take on the Persona of a Well-Rounded Leader in Shaping the Onboarding Process
  • Onboard Creatively & Impactfully
  • Build a Compelling Case for your CHRO/VP HR to Invest in Onboarding
