The 5 Firsts

Did you know:

  • Fifty percent of new, hourly employees quit in the first six months and
    that many of those leave during the first month?
  • That many of these are people who get the impression that either they and/or
    what they do are not very important?
  • That more than 70 percent of the American workers recently polled by Gallup describe
    themselves as either “not engaged” or “totally unengaged” with their jobs.

Those are just a few of the reasons why the answers to the following questions are critical to every employer’s bottom line:

  • When on-boarding new hires, do you take advantage of the power of first impressions?
  • Why the day and time you start your new employees makes a difference?
  • Why you should never start a new employee on Monday morning first thing or at the
    beginning of a shift?

The 5 Firsts program is designed to help you efficiently and cost-effectively establish a positive, lasting relationship with every new hire and is keyed to these important events:

  1. The FIRST HOUR
  2. The end of the FIRST DAY
  3. The end of the FIRST WEEK
  4. The FIRST PAYCHECK
  5. The end of the FIRST 30 DAYS
