Thank you for participating in the “Onboarding: The Vital Gap Between Hiring & Training” workshop.  As HR professionals, you’re biggest challenge will be getting the buy-in from other managers and executives about the importance of onboarding and their specific role.  The resources on this page are intended to help you succeed in getting buy in.

I have had so many requests for the Sales Profitability Calculator, Onboarding white paper, as well as the list of resources from everything I cover in the program, that I have created this page, just for you, with all the downloads.

Here is a link that will save you 20% off Hire Right, Higher Profits by Lee Salz.  I highly recommend this book for selecting and onboarding salespeople.  While it is written with “salespeople” in mind, the methodology is applicable for most roles in your company.

Hire Right, Higher Profits Book Savings Link   BONUS! When you purchase Hire Right, Higher Profits, you also get access to Lee’s virtual training course, Get Your New Hire Salespeople Up to Speed… Fast!, a $99 value. This one-hour video program helps you implement the book’s methodology in your company.

Here is the message I shared which Apple includes with the welcome packet for their new hires

(Source: Successfull Onboarding by Mark Stein & Lilith Christiansen, 2010, page 107)

“There’s work and there’s your life’s work.  The kind of work that has your fingerprints all over it.  The kind of work you’d never compromise on.  That you’d sacrifice a weekend for.  You can do that kind of work at Apple.  People don’t come here to play it safe.  They come to swim in the deep end.  They want their work to add up to something.  Something big.  Something that couldn’t happen anywhere else.”
