The Retention Institute Hosts Webinar to Help Companies Combat Employee Turnover

PETERBOROUGH, NH -– Oct. 8, 2009 –- For many companies, half of all employee turnover happens in the first 90 days. Industries, such as retail, fast food, and call centers make hiring decisions they think are right but then watch large chunks of their talent leave shortly after hire.

Join Dick Finnegan, a recognized leading advisor on employee retention, as he explains the secrets to building a bond with new hires in their first 90 days of employment. The Retention Institute will sponsor the webinar titled “Rethinking Retention in the First 90 Days” on Thursday, Oct. 22, 2009 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Finnegan will offer research-based solutions, as well as company best practices for retaining employees. Specific topics Finnegan will cover include onboarding programs that drive retention, new-hire monitoring processes that enhance keeping the right employees and post-hire interviews that bond new hires to supervisors and peers.

“Rethinking Retention in the First 90 Days” is the second in a series of webinars from The Retention Institute scheduled for this fall. To register for the complimentary webinar, visit
