As recruiters, you help create the first impression a candidate has of your organization. You work hard to make that impression accurate, informative, and customer service based. But unfortunately, that impression can quickly change if the transition to practice does not go smoothly. When onboarding is not done well, the new physician may question their decision and could potentially start looking for a new position within months of starting. What can you do? Don’t worry! Help is on its way in this webinar. We will review the critical role recruiters play in the onboarding process and discover some key, easy strategies you can implement to enhance the onboarding program at your organization.
Participants will learn and discuss:
- Onboarding basics
- Differences between onboarding and orientation
- Recruiter’s role in onboarding
- Practical ways to enhance onboarding at your organization
- Onboarding resources/ websites
