4 Steps to a Better Sales Onboarding Plan

Improve your sales onboarding plan with the Agile Sales Onboarding Methodology.

Ask any sales enablement leader what their biggest challenges are, and sales onboarding will likely be at the top of the list. Unfortunately, too many sales organizations still use onboarding approaches that simply don’t work. In fact, 60% of onboarding programs are not meeting sales managers’ expectations, according to SMA.

In today’s market, stakes are high – markets are competitive, innovation is widespread and hyper-growth is a reality – so there’s no time to waste. Sales enablement leaders need to prioritize a better way of onboarding their new sales hires that focuses on improving time to productivity and reducing the trial-and-error nature of traditional onboarding.
