IE203 Using Mobile Tech to Help Managers Engage with New Hires Effectively
12:00 PM - 12:45 PM Wednesday, June 21
Expo Hall: Interactive Experiences Stage
New hires feel excitement, uncertainty, enthusiasm, and discomfort. It can be a roller coaster ride! Line manager engagement has a significantly beneficial impact on new hires’ learning curve and sense of belonging; however, managers are often stretched with multiple responsibilities, and new starters’ needs are relegated. This session will outline a project that utilized mobile device features to shift the new-hire experience from one of passive consumption to active participation while simultaneously making the managers’ role more time-efficient and impactful. The solution delivered better performance, earlier, while reducing attrition.
