The MRC Difference

According to a survey conducted by Careerbuilder and Silkroad Technology (nine percent,) or 1 in 10 have left a company because of a poor onboarding experience, and 37% percent of employees said their manager did not play a critical role in their onboarding experience support.

Will Rogers once said, “You never get a second chance to make a great first impression,” and nothing could be truer when onboarding in a post-pandemic world.  In response to this critical challenge facing many manufacturers, MRC has masterfully crafted an engaging, interactive onboarding program that standardizes one of the most important processes of the employee experience.  This comprehensive course provides insight into the five fundamental gates of organizational socialization, critical to attracting, developing, and retaining top talent.  Participants will begin by mapping their current onboarding process to identify missing elements and then create a strategic plan to implement back in their world of work.  Real world implementation checks along with the sharing of best practices among similar organizations provide an invaluable experience.
