Hear the Recording – Register below

Join us for the first of a five-part series, based on the informational book, Talent Management for Dummies, Deltek Special Edition.

For years, there has been talk of a “war for talent.”

It’s a battle that continues to gain increased attention – especially since the recent recession created a significantly reduced workforce who was asked to do more with less. The result? Increasingly, an organization’s people and its support for them became a company’s most valuable attribute, providing opportunities for differentiation and a competitive edge.

In this webinar, Silversoft Expert, Kathryn Gordon, will highlight how the war for talent has affected today’s conditions. With so many open positions after the recession, companies are struggling to stand out from their competitors in order to not only attract the top talent but keep it.

Highlights include:

  • Understanding the challenges of a multi-generational workforce
  • The importance of aligning your talent management strategy with your business strategy
  • Why companies who are winning the war for talent are embracing technology to help them be competitive

Enhancing Onboarding for Shorter Time to Productivity

Download Webinar Recording Below

Onboarding is a part of HR that is often underrated despite its potential to impact new hire productivity and retention. Companies tend to think of onboarding as a series of new hire paperwork to cover compliance requirements, while overlooking the more in-depth components of setting goals and milestones in an established training program. By having more comprehensive onboarding, new hires gain full proficiency in their positions 34% faster than those in shorter programs.

What does this mean for you? In project-based industries where your people are your business, getting new talent onboarded quickly means expanding your capability to take on new contracts, and having the right talent in place to fulfill your current contracts on time and on budget.

Download the Enhancing Onboarding for Shorter Time to Productivity Webinar to learn the effect onboarding has on new hire productivity particularly in project-based industries, while providing tips and best practices for building out a more thorough onboarding program.

Highlights of the Webinar include:

  • Onboarding statistics relating to new hire productivity
  • The three components of formal onboarding
  • Building your onboarding program for shorter time to productivity
