Think back to the best job you ever had. Maybe it’s the one you have now, maybe it's not. What made it so great? I bet you’ll recall things like workplace perks, a solid benefits package, awesome teammates and maybe even a manager that you credit for where you are today. But what about that company’s onboarding program? Did that come to mind? For most people, probably not.

Hopefully you can use these tips and tactics to make your community someone's future favorite job!
