Amin Fard:

Amin is the founder and CEO of Preppio. He is passionate about making large companies create better relationships at work. He has experienced that the onboarding experience led him to become a terrible employee earlier in his career, but also as a manager for other people, giving terrible onboarding to his employees (Yes, even in the early days for Preppio).

“The potential in me was there, but I was not prepared and set up for success. I know the value of giving new starters a flying start, creating Preppio is a way for me to make a difference for all the employees that are not engaged in their work, managers that do not really know how to handle their latest hires and for all the HR people trying their best, but not getting the positive feedback from the rest of the organization.”

Who is this course for?

This guide is for Human Resources professionals wanting to put the employee experience in the center of the employee onboarding process for their company and to improve the employee experience during the critical pre-and onboarding process. Some of you might work in companies that have no structured onboarding practice in place, others have created a process and want to learn more on how to suit the onboarding process to the world we live in today. It is for people at the entry HR assistant and the experienced CHRO.

We want to motivate and give you the confidence you need to actively pursue a great opportunity where you can impact hundreds, even thousands of lives the organization dramatically by improving the way the company onboards employees to the organization.

Onboarding is proven to reduce the time to productivity for new hires, reduce the unwanted turnover, and set the engagement, we believe that setting the right atmosphere during the onboarding phase you enable people to do their best work and help employees reach their people’s deepest needs of belonging and love, esteem, and even self-actualization. This will, in turn, make your company attract and retain the best people.

We believe the people interested in reading this are people who care deeply about the “human” part of Human Resources and think strategically about the subject to drive impact. We want to help you break away from being viewed as the person and department they come to when there is a problem at work, but see HR as critical and strategic support to the organization’s goals. Because people are a competitive advantage, more now than ever!

What you will learn:

What employee onboarding is from a scientific perspective, why your organization needs to think more strategically and scientifically on the process of onboarding employees in the right way, the onboarding software, tactics, and processes that are needed, and why and you actively pursue to modernize and improve the employee onboarding in your organization.

What will you need to do?
