The American Alliance of Museums and AAM’s Leadership and Management Network are presenting a webinar on Thursday, September 14th, 2017, 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm, Getting Started with Employee Onboarding. In conjunction with this webinar, Historic Newton is hosting a free webinar “watch and talk” event at the Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds, and we would like you to join us. This is a great opportunity to connect with and learn from local colleagues – and the webinar is only accessible at one of the watch-talk locations. There is no cost to attend our local “watch and talk” event, however advanced registration is required. Feel free to forward this to anyone else in the museum community.

Getting Started with Employee Onboarding

This webinar will benefit hiring managers and HR professionals seeking to enhance their onboarding practices. After participating in this program, participants will be able to identify the importance of onboarding in engaging every new hire from the start; learn how onboarding increases job satisfaction and performance, and decreases turnover; gain practical advice on the different stages of the onboarding process, and important things to do even before your new hire starts work; and, take away ready-to-use, scalable ideas and suggestions to create a fully-inclusive onboarding program that is custom-made for your organization.

The “watch and talk” event at the Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds consists of the following, but you do not have to attend the pre and post sessions if you do not wish:

  • 30 minutes of pre-webinar check-in and networking (optional)
  • 90-minute live webinar (2:00 pm to 3:30 pm)
