Upcoming Skoda Minotti Events


Welcome to the Team:

The 4 secrets that will differentiate your onboarding experience and help retain your top talent.

“I carried my phone to my desk on my first day.” “I couldn’t even find a pen!” “They printed my name wrong on my business cards.” “I still don’t know how to check my pay stubs and it’s been 3 months.” “I haven’t printed anything because I don’t know what printers are near me.” This is all feedback that the Human Resources Consulting team at Skoda Minotti has heard from new hires.

Do you want to feel prepared for your new hires’ arrival? Do you want your new employees to feel like you’ve invested in them? Do you want to show supervisors in your organization that you’ve prepared their new staff to be productive quickly?

As our organization began to grow rapidly, the need for a more formalized, recurring onboarding program became a priority. Our comprehensive onboarding program was born out of the need to service many new hires on varying topics and provide the tools and information necessary for them to be productive as fast as possible after hire.

Skoda Minotti’s award-winning onboarding program has proven effective, and we want to share our best practices with you! Join us for this series on the essentials of onboarding.

Registering for this event grants you access to all four webinars.
