If your organization is not onboarding talent
the right way, you are driving them away
What we all want from work is to be valued members of a winning
team on an inspiring mission.
Co-founder & Chairman, Rackspace
To make your onboarding program work you have to base it on the following principles
Make sure your program:
- has a sound structure, well-timed stages and steps so as not to overwhelm a new employee or other people responsible;
- involves a number of people from various departments and organizational levels;
- is individually designed for a specific context: relies on participation and feedback from a new hire;
- is multifaceted: not restricted to explaining a companys policy and dealing with legal matters and job specifics, but rather introducing a hire to a broader context.
