Instructed by: Wendy Rae Walker, NALP, CAPS, NAAEI Faculty, COO, Topaz Asset Management

Recommended for: Regional Managers, Property Managers

Class Description: As of February 2021, there was a whopping 10,224 open positions in the multifamily industry.  The market is more competitive than ever, creating an urgency to make the right decision the first time when hiring.  But finding the right person does not guarantee that they will stay.  The multifamily industry is notorious for handing new hires the keys and letting them learn as they go, which can oftentimes lead to quick turnover of even the most promising of employees.  To truly engage your employees, you must start from day one with an exceptional onboarding program.

In this class you will learn:

  • Best practices to develop a successful and meaningful onboarding process.
  • How to create a senses of culture and work environment with your new employee.
  • The roles that HR, managers, and co-workers will play in the process.
  • How to quickly establish employee engagement.
  • How to gather feedback and measure your success.
