Workplace Application: This session will show you how to create an onboarding experience that engages your new hires, keeps them out of trouble and makes them take charge of their own professional development.

Companies face the challenge of onboarding new hires with fewer resources and reduced budgets. In addition, Gen Y employees come to work with drastically different life experiences, skills and expectations. Without a new onboarding approach, companies will see lagging productivity, embarrassing mistakes and costly turnover. Organizations need to move away from the “one size fits all” onboarding approach, personalize the experience and take advantage of digital skills common to more and more new hires

Todd Hudson


With more than 20 years of industrial engineering and plant management experience at European, Chinese and US-owned companies in a variety of industries, he’s seen just about everything the business world can throw at you. From frenetic growth and high volume, to cutting out fat, cutting into muscle and cutting your own throat.

Todd is a long-time lean operations practitioner and six sigma black belt. He’s started up a billion-dollar semiconductor fab, improved factory performance so it just hums along, integrated operations after mergers and acquisitions and outsourced production overseas laying off hundreds of employees and closing plants.

In 2000, Todd started the Maverick Institute to pioneer the application of lean production principles to training and development. Throughout his career, Todd’s seen that effective knowledge transfer and sharing of expertise are critical elements to success. Today, the blistering pace of change, the globalization of business and the explosion of learning technologies requires organizations adopt a new learning framework.
