    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 10/21/2020

    Let’s face it, training your team often takes a back seat to the chaos that is staffing. Typical training strategy in staffing is “jump in” and make it happen. While learning through osmosis is a fast way to see if your recruiters have what it takes, it can also land your company in legal and financial trouble if bad placements are made. Not to mention the evergreen issue of retention. Change your training strategy, and your time to productivity could be reduced from six months to 30 days. This panel will focus on how any size staffing company can create an onboarding program that addresses these issues and gets the best possible results from its new recruits in the shortest possible time.
