SBDC Hiring to Retain

November 3, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm


Too often, managers look at the hiring process from a technical standpoint. Yet behavioral fit is just as important – if not more so. Hiring a staff member who does not fit behaviorally can slow down your whole team and lead to high financial and time costs in the form of rehiring and retraining new team members.

Following the COVID pandemic, employees are quitting their jobs at record levels – more people are resigning now than have at any time in the past fifteen years. The best way to avoid this kind of “mass resignation” is to hire and onboard well – get the right people and they’ll stay for a lot longer. Wilcox Consulting works with teams and leaders to improve hiring, retention, and employee engagement. The right people, with the right motivation and understanding of your business can not only save you money when you retain them, but they can also give you a competitive advantage with their passion and commitment.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • how to identify the ideal team member
  • to identify which questions you can ask during an interview to bring the right people on board
  • uncommon interviewing tips to help you make the right hire more often
  • the necessity of optimizing the new-hire’s onboarding process to help shape them into the kind of employee you want them to be

You will leave this session with multiple tools at your disposal to help you hire and onboard your new employees – these skills will decrease your turnover and turn your company into a desired place to work – giving you less time spent hiring, and more time making money.
