Symposium cinfo

22 September 2017, Haus der Universität, Berne

Onboarding sets the tone for the satisfaction and success of new staff members, both at headquarters and in the field. But what exactly is onboarding? Where does it start and where does it end? Why is it important to invest in onboarding? This symposium provides the opportunity to enrich your perspectives on diverse aspects of onboarding, onboard-keeping and off-boarding. And to learn from other sectors.

Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don't want to.
