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.

Why is it so important to get onboarding right?

Making Job Fairs Work for You

By Brent O’Bryan, SPHR, Vice President, Learning and Development, AlliedBarton Security Services

What Workers Want

By Dr. Jack Wiley, Founder and Executive director, Kenexa High Performance Institute For more than 30 years we’ve been asking workers around the world what they most want from the organizations for which they work. The results are fascinating and explain the basic truths about employee needs and desires. They also, and possibly most strikingly, reveal that managers and organizations that give their employees what they want outperform those that don’t.

Dispelling the Myths of Creating a Winning Corporate Culture

By Joseph Gianni, President and CEO, 2logical Few would deny the majestic power of a winning corporate culture. When the odds are stacked against the success of a mission critical corporate objective, a strong corporate culture can persevere through all kinds of challenges and setbacks—and make, well, even the impossible…possible. Even in the most turbulent market conditions, a strong corporate culture can shorten the recovery time from minor or major setbacks by as much as tenfold, when compared to an organization lacking the “right stuff.”

View from 30,000 Feet

By Lorri Freifeld

Orchestrating a smooth training transition during a merger or acquisition is never easy. But when it involves the joining of two major airlines, well, fasten your seatbelts. There almost definitely will be turbulence ahead.

Give & Take

By Gail Dutton

Employees in a negotiation training workshop are chatting happily in a company cafeteria near San Francisco. They’re not on break. They’re on assignment. Their objective: to discover three things they didn’t know—and wouldn’t have guessed—about each other. They have two minutes.

B-School vs. C-School

By Margery Weinstein

When you see on a resume that an applicant graduated at the top of his or her business school class, does that necessarily translate into guaranteed success behind the desk at your company? A business school background can’t hurt, but most organizations know it is far from enough. With more individuals touting business school degrees on their resumes, companies are recognizing the need to help these new employees apply what they learned in the classroom to the real world of tight budgets and stretched financial goals.

Last Word: Building Strong Relationships

By Peter Post

When I became involved in the Emily Post Institute teaching about etiquette, I found myself sitting at a lunchroom counter one day scribbling notes for an upcoming talk. The thrust of the talk was the importance of etiquette in building relationships. Etiquette, after all, is more than just a bunch of rules. Its true purpose is to guide us to make choices that build relationships.

Talent Tips: Onboarding Recognition

By Roy Saunderson

Most orientation and onboarding programs are manager-initiated or online portal-delivered sets of steps, policies and procedures, and general ground rules to function on the job. Whether it is health and safety guidelines, learning the full benefits package, taking assigned online learning presentations, or signing off on required Human Resources documents, it can turn into a lot of information cramming and a check-box mentality of task completion.

World View: Focus on Panama

By Dr. Neil Orkin

Location, location, location! Panama has been blessed with a perfect location to conduct commercial shipping. A ship can cross from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean and vice versa by using the 50-mile waterway known as the Panama Canal. The revenues generated from the canal are critical to the country’s financial success. Panama intends to greatly increase the canal’s capacity by 2014. This unique waterway will have a major impact on the country’s development.

Soapbox: Certified by Caterpillar

By Jeffrey C. Thomson, CMA, and Janie Copeland, CPA

Caterpillar Inc., a leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, knows infrastructure: Caterpillar machinery and engines can be found all over the world. Just as Caterpillar equipment is used to make progress possible, the company also understands the importance of developing a diverse and well-trained accounting staff.

Soapbox: Leading in the Second Half of Life

By Jann Freed, Ph.D.

At 45, most executives have reached their peak and are bored. While they are very good at their jobs, they often are not learning and are no longer challenged. Yet, they are likely to have another 20 to 25 years of work. So managing oneself often leads to beginning a second career.

How-To: Cement Learning in Just 5 Minutes

By Kendra Lee

When we as trainers create training, it’s not enough to just deliver it. If we want to make it stick, we need strategies to cement the content long after the program appears to be over.

One of the most common ways to reinforce key content is to make it available in a bite-sized format that’s easy for participants to review, useful for managers to reinforce, and easy to integrate as pre-work into related programs.
