INDUSTRY INSIGHT: STRATEGIC ONBOARDING—HELP NEW HIRES BELONG AND DELIVER RESULTS

When new hires choose your company as “the one,” it’s a big deal for them and you. And it’s personal. There’s nothing they want more than to belong — to fit in, understand their role, learn the ropes, and add value to the organization right away.

Because it’s personal, one-size onboarding isn’t going to work. Organizations should look at the new hire onboarding process as a complete experience. In fact, onboarding should begin from the moment the candidate says, “Yes.” That means personalizing the offer letter and pre-boarding experience and creating more than a task checklist about workspaces, computers, and paperwork. Strategic onboarding rapidly engages enthusiastic new hires into the life of the organization and keeps them continuously engaged with every career move or transition.

The point is not to just to teach a person to fish, but also to teach him or her as many ways as possible to get food to survive. The same is true with developing today’s workforce.

Selling the Value

Changing of the Guard: Fewer “Workaholics”

With Baby Boomers moving out of the workforce, and Generation Xers and Millennials moving in, there may be a shift in culture, in which workaholic bosses are no longer accepted as “just the way things are.”

5 Ways to Manage Your Narcissistic Boss

Being yelled at, being publicly criticized, and being asked to cover for your manager are all inappropriate behaviors regardless of what you have done. Managers are supposed to motivate and manage their employees, and this type of behavior does neither.

Creating Better Customer Relationships Through Improv

If you utilize a pattern of affirming and building, while listening intently, you will find that the conversations with customers are more natural, customer focused, and deliver potential for increased sales.

The Blue-Collar Experience

When you design training, it really boils down to knowing your audience. Try to know more than their job titles—what physical, time, or environmental constraints are they facing? What skills and background knowledge are typical strengths? How will you support their weaknesses?

Treating Customers Like Friends

“Loyalty” is a word that is synonymous with the concept of relationship building in the business world.

Don’t Just Engage…Entertain!
