The Last Critical Component of Talent Acquisition

On-Boarding as well as Pre-Boarding (yes, that's a very real thing) activities are increasingly considered responsibilities that should sit squarely within the world of Talent Acquisition.  What was once something that was either handed off to the hiring department or ignored entirely has become a rapidly emerging discipline.

Shared just last month, this Onboarding | The Retention Connection Recruiting Trends article by Andrew R. McIlvaine about KPMG's (a CareerXroads member company) on-boarding practice is a worthwhile read.  Coincidentally, last month, another member, Comcast hosted a candidate experience workshop for TalentBoard in Philadelphia and offered detailed pre and post results (raising NPS scores from 12 to the mid-50s) based on their recent major effort to revitalize On-Boarding and reduce significant and early turnover.

CareerXroads members can look forward to in-depth discussions about On-Boarding and Pre-Boarding in CXR's Operations Colloquium later this summer.
