We have all heard the saying, “People are our greatest asset”. If so, then why do many organizations drop the ball with regard to their on-boarding? By the time we find them, tell them, sell them on joining our organization and ramp them to productivity, we have a small fortune invested! Done well, on-boarding positively impacts culture and reduces bad turnover. Yet some think it’s acceptable to pay lip services to this crucial function. A good hire can be turned into a bad hire if proper on-boarding is practiced. And the worst of it is that this is self-inflicted! Phrases like, “we were just too busy”, or “they have x number of years of experience and should know what to do” are offered up as after the fact excuses for not understanding the importance of getting new stakeholders properly integrated with their new work family. If you have had challenges with this in the past, or are evaluation your on-boarding processes, you won’t want to miss Illuminating Leadership!
