Join this program to learn: What does recent stock market volatility for publicly traded institutions tell us? What lessons from the Great Recession may be helpful now? What impact could the current environment have on director and officer liability? What practical action items can save the bank time, money, and regulatory burden? What “opportunities” may exist in the current environment to help weather the storm? This timely “hot topic” GSB online seminar will provide thoughtful topics for your board and executive management team to consider at your next meeting. Don’t wait – register today. Target Audience:  Board of Directors and executive management.   Read More

Presenter: Ann Knutson, First Bank Financial Centre This 90-minute program will be presented live on: February 27, 10:00-11:30 a.m. Central Time Recording available through: May 27, 2019 Price: $275   On-boarding is a prime opportunity for employers to win the hearts and minds of new employees.  The old adage still holds true: "You never get a second chance to make a first impression." So give some thought to what kind of first impression you want new hires to have of the organization. But if you truly want to design an onboarding program that drives retention and performance, the new employee orientation is simply the first step in a longer journey.  Studies show that organizations that offer new employees a strong onboarding process improve retention by 82% and improve productivity by over 70%. A structured onboarding process shows employees that you’re excited that they’re there. Onboarding is different than training. Every new employee that is brought into an organization will need to be trained to be effective. But onboarding is a greater concept that encompasses training. Onboarding is the entire experience for your new employee for their first 30 to 90 days at the organization. The first six months is like the honeymoon period of a new job. It is crucial for employers to take advantage of the power of the first six months to turn new hires into long-term valuable employees. That’s why onboarding is important. In this webinar your will learn: Costs of not having a formal onboarding program. The best new hire welcome practices for your company. Making a business case for your onboarding program. Developing, implementing and measuring your onboarding program. Tactics for welcoming Millennials (and more senior hires too!)   Target Audience: Human resource officers, supervisors, CEOs Read More
