hi men okay thanks for coming by today I
00:11
know that we’re busy and we have such
00:13
full calendars but I think it’s really
00:15
important for us to be able to connect
00:17
every now and then just to check in just
00:21
to make sure that we keep those lines of
00:23
communication open so I appreciate you
00:25
taking the time to do this today I want
00:28
to start by asking you what do you think
00:30
it’s been working well for you
00:32
these past few weeks okay I’m really
00:35
pleased with what I’m seeing and the
00:38
engagement of our first year employees
00:41
that’s been a concern I’ve shared with
00:42
you last time and I thought where I
00:44
thought we had too much turnover that
00:46
first year with our new employees and so
00:52
I’m seeing a change in that and I
00:55
appreciate the help that you gave me the
00:59
training that you’ve sent me to on 30 90
01:01
day conversations and put that into
01:04
place and I think that’s I really glad
01:08
to to hear that and your position in HR
01:11
that’s a really important thing that
01:13
you’re working on so thanks for sharing
01:15
that how do you think that I can be
01:18
helpful to you I believe that we still
01:23
have some work to do always and our HR
01:27
processes really like to look at how we
01:30
can tighten some of that one area that I
01:34
have seen that really needs some work as
01:36
the onboarding process I think it would
01:39
be helpful if we could look at more
01:41
effective processes in that area try to
01:45
reduce the amount of time it’s taking
01:47
for onboarding you know I’m seeing some
01:50
gaps maybe in the process and the
01:53
miscommunication between departments so
01:56
it would be helpful if we could follow
02:00
the same pattern we did with the
02:03
employee engagement in the 30 90 day
02:05
conversations and maybe find that a
02:08
another organization has got some great
02:11
processes someone on duty that
02:14
talk with learn from them or maybe
02:16
they’re trying to go okay I think I’ve
02:22
captured most of what you you said about
02:24
that that it’s it’s taking too long
02:26
we’ve got some gaps and the actual
02:28
processes and that you really like to
02:31
connect with some other organizations
02:32
who might be able to share their best
02:34
practices is that about right
02:37
absolutely thank you good that’s a
02:39
that’s a big one but we can we can
02:41
tackle that who has been especially
02:44
helpful to you these past few weeks that
02:47
I could think I say your administrative
02:52
assistant money anna has been extremely
02:55
helpful and I say that because she has
02:58
been instrumental in connecting me to
02:59
the right training the first time when
03:02
we needed help with the employee
03:05
engagement the 3090 day-to-day
03:06
conversations very helpful in getting me
03:09
to the right spot the right training and
03:11
getting me registered for that so I
03:13
really appreciate the extra steps that
03:15
she took to do that and then I hoping to
03:18
make sure we stay connected and
03:20
communicating on the effective outcome
03:22
of that well thank you for sharing that
03:25
