Let's talk about onboarding
New hires enter your door on their first day with shining faces and anxious demeanors. They’re eager and excited—and they’re looking to you to help in their success. But do you know what it’s going to take to make that happen?
It’s the ongoing dilemma of needing help but not having enough time to train the help you need. That’s why formal onboarding programs are so important—they’re a key factor for hiring great talent and ramping them up to be productive, quickly.
If I’m new and onboarding is chaotic, inconsistent and spotty, I immediately wonder if I made the right choice and if the company has its act together. If onboarding is approached consistently and structured, I understand what’s expected of me and it fosters trust with the company.
