CGS to Participate in and Sponsor Human Capital Institute Webinar Focused on Creating a Successful Onboarding Program

Elizabeth Woodward, senior learning program manager, to present onboarding techniques and tips alongside enterprise onboarding experts

New York, NY – March 22, 2016 – CGS, a global provider of business applications, enterprise learning and outsourcing services, announced that it is sponsoring and participating in the Human Capital Institute (HCI) webinar titled, New Hire Blind Spots - Exposing the Most Overlooked Barriers to Onboarding Success, on Tuesday, April 5, at 1 p.m. EDT. Elizabeth Woodward, CGS senior manager of learning programs, will be joined on the panel by Amy Swanson, CH2MHill global onboarding implementation and strategy lead, and Stephanie Bertmer, Hulu onboarding program manager.

Quickly providing value to employees during the onboarding process can have a lasting effect on employee commitment, contribution and retention, as well as lead to a successful transfer of expertise back into the company’s knowledge pool. However, while most companies understand why the onboarding process is important, many are still failing to implement strong and consistent programs.

During HCI’s upcoming webinar, the expert panel will share real-life case studies and examples of common blind spots that can interfere with the onboarding experience. Attendees will also learn techniques to help them avoid common pitfalls associated with communication, cultural fit and continuous follow-up – difficulties often cited following an unsuccessful onboarding process.

“While organizations today know the importance of onboarding, many are still struggling to implement and embrace a robust, impactful and consistent program,” said Woodward. “I’m excited to join this HCI webinar and share best practices for creating onboarding programs that offer positive impressions on new hires and provide a strong foundation for the rest of their careers.”
