    Featured Topic: Virtual Onboarding: Best Practices, Tips, and Tricks

     
    Speaker: Ethan Rothstein, Associate consultant at Aon Assessment Solutions


    Ethan is an Associate Consultant for Aon Assessment Solutions, North America. He focuses on helping organizations advance their talent strategy through assessment, selection, and development programs. His clients range from small to fortune 100 organizations, and he has experience across several industries including finance, technology, energy, manufacturing, agriculture, hospitality, retail, automotive, and aviation. Ethan holds a Ph.D. in industrial-organizational psychology from The Graduate Center, City University of New York and is located in New York, NY.


    Topic Overview:  New employees encounter tremendous uncertainty when joining an organization, from learning the role, to adjusting to their team, to assimilating into the company culture. Organizations use onboarding to guide new employees through this adjustment period and provide them with the resources they need to learn and succeed. Traditionally, many onboarding practices are in-person so that new employees can meet their colleagues face-to-face and learn the office culture first-hand.


    2020 introduced a new challenge for many: virtual onboarding. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations revamped their onboarding practices to help remote employees integrate without having to leave their homes. As we move further into the era of remote work, organizations that embrace virtual onboarding will continue to enhance their talent strategy and gain a competitive advantage.


    Please join our webinar, Virtual Onboarding: Best Practices, Tips, and Tricks, to learn how companies are tackling this new challenge. We will also highlight how organizations can leverage virtual onboarding to improve diversity and foster equity and inclusion.
