New Starter Workshops

The TalkSales onboarding workshops work well to let delegates know what expected of them in their new roles and how to deliver on those expectations for the business. In our experience, both these values have a huge impact on lowering new starter attrition & increasing retention which means saving money.

Research by TalkSales has identified that 80% of new starters to the industry leave within 8 months, this because new starters do not have a clear L& D  plan in place and outside of Manufacturer portal training are ‘starved’ basic selling skills training.

The program is a clear investment In getting the best out of every new starter. Independent research suggests that the cost of re-hiring another Sales Adviser, taking into account,  time spent filtering CV’s, candidates, interview time,  advertising costs, Agency fees, salary & NI, HR administration time,  Car & fuel, training fees + loss Sales in dealership due staff shortages, this can be as much as £35,000 per person.

The message from this, do all you can to get it right first time. Yes there is an investment/cost to do this, but what’s the true cost of not doing it?

Also on the onboarding workshop,  there may be some established Sales Advisers that would benefit from a ‘reboot’ on the basics too.

The location of the onboarding Workshop can be delivered on-site or a convenient hotel to the Business.
