Skills-Based Onboarding

Recruiting and hiring a new staff member takes time away from other priorities. Once your new hire is in place, it takes even more time to get them up to speed. The reality is many new hires have strong skills in one area but not another. It can take months for them to achieve their full potential as a high-impact member of your team.

 

Nave Strategies provides arts and cultural organizations with skills-based onboarding to get your new hire up to speed faster and take that responsibility off your plate. By taking advantage of this service, in ten short weeks your new hire will:

  1. Learn and implement best practices

  2. Understand their role in the financial health of the organization

  3. Have the tools necessary to build positive relationships with key constituents

 

If you are considering ways to speed up the onboarding process and give back time to your day, here’s your chance to do so for less than one month’s salary. Your investment will quickly pay for itself by enhancing their effectiveness, elevating their collaboration with your team, and focusing them on increasing net income faster.
