On-Boarding New Hire Experienced Sales Reps

This technology industry company was growing rapidly and challenged with getting experienced sales reps up to speed with the company’s proprietary products, services, and methodologies.

New Hire Orientation Problem & Objectives

Better acclimate and integrate experienced, but newly hired, sales people into the company’s sales methodology and systems while ensuring that they can effectively sell the company’s value proposition using proprietary ROI approaches and tools.

New Hire Orientation Results

  • 98.4% satisfaction
  • Decreased process time by 50%+ by using online pre-work and interactivity: pre-work speed to ramp time went from ~3 weeks to 2 days (online), live portion from ~2+months to 3 days
  • Decreased SME prep time by 40-50% overall and no prep time for LSA-designed portions
  • Created 18 customized sales job aids to support on-the-job reinforcement
  • Enabled new sales force to understand and implement new and proprietary sales ROI model before interacting with clients – this work was delivered to APAC, EMEA, North America, and the existing sales force year

As a Training Outsourcing Partner, LSA consistently saves me time and money by understanding what matters to our strategy and what works in our unique culture.

Their practical and outcome-oriented methodology is fantastic and allows us to deploy better solutions faster.

I highly recommend them to anyone looking to raise the talent bar with a true strategic partner.

LSA brought a very effective training strategy, design, and implementation approach to help us create a common language around our corporate training.

As a fast growing company with a geographically dispersed workforce, LSA’s expertise was invaluable to us in driving consistency, creating a sense of belonging for our employees, and developing a common language for everyone.

The experiential New Employee Orientation was an incredible success for 2,500+ new hires over 4 years spread across the globe.

LSA partnered with us to create an innovative solution on very short notice and added a huge amount of value.

We could never have done it without their unmatched combination of expertise, professionalism, and creativity that aligned everything with our unique culture and growth strategy.

Even our executives and experienced hires were blown away!

Having a training outsourcing partner like LSA to support our talent management needs has been a real blessing. In an emerging company where typically you can’t afford the infrastructure necessary to provide a full range of offerings, having an external partner like LSA has been a blessing.

They deeply understand our business and our culture.   They do a great job on a wide range of customized training, consulting, and coaching solutions for us.

For us, they are definitely better than having our own internal Training and Organizational Development function.  They always do what it takes to hit the mark.

Chris Wells
Vice President, HR and IT

We have partnered with LSA for years.  Our organization’s learning needs have increased, decreased, and increased again over time.

The beauty of LSA’s business model is its flexibility and depth of their expertise.

When we need strategic or tactical outside help that we can trust, we use LSA knowing that we can depend on outstanding quality advice and targeted solutions every time.  You cannot go wrong with LSA.

LSA’s action-learning leadership approach has been very beneficial to me, our leadership team, and the entire organization.

The balance of development and results has been excellent.

We have made huge progress, and I was also able to identify 2-3 high potentials while having the extra benefit of people stepping up to carry key strategic projects forward.

The experience was better than anticipated.  I could not be more pleased.

We partnered with LSA to help custom design, deliver, and measure an advanced new employee on-boarding process. It was well thought out and bought into by sales leadership.

The combination of targeted sales tools, technology, coaching, performance plans, training, and reinforcement made all the difference.

The solution quantifiably improved new employee and hiring manager satisfaction and increased the speed to sales quota for new hires.

I would highly recommend LSA Global for any sales enablement team looking to increase the engagement and speed to productivity of their sales force. We are excited to implement the program globally as we continue to scale.

The refreshing thing about LSA is that they focus on understanding our business situation and helping me succeed instead of selling stuff. Their experts are an invaluable resource that help me deliver higher quality results faster. I recommend them to anyone looking to improve the performance of their workforce.

We looked to LSA Global as a consulting partner to help us explore innovative and scholarly approaches to promote employee engagement and sustain the unique culture we’ve built over the last decade.  LSA helped us perpetuate coaching as a discipline across the organization by integrating our core values, goal setting, and performance management.

We appreciate LSA’s commitment to cutting-edge practices to help keep us a step ahead during this time of rapid change.
