Fine-Tuning your Onboarding Process and Optimizing for Employee Success
Roughly 90% of Ontario’s F&B processors are small businesses. And often, the task of preparing employees for success at your business is yet another task that falls on the shoulders of just one or two people.

In this session, we cover how to establish an effective onboarding process that leverages the whole team. Participants will also learn the steps to this vital process that extends well beyond a new hire’s first day and the transformative benefits it can have on your organization’s culture, staffing, and productivity.


Date: August 30, 2022

Time: 2 p.m.

Duration: 1 hour

Cost: Free
