Onboarding has three goals: to inform, to welcome and to guide new hires. By focusing on these goals, you can help ensure that your onboarding program is consistently effective.
The fact is traditional onboarding programs, while effective for most of the employee population, fall short at the executive level. Onboarding members of the leadership team requires a unique approach — one geared more toward integration.
Instilling the ability to navigate change within the organization’s culture should be a key aim of an onboarding program.
The more quickly new hires can become acclimated to their new role, the more satisfied and successful they will be in the organization.
Help new hires develop a continuous learning mindset by structuring the onboarding program as a learning journey that extends over a longer period, with decreasing “handholding” and increasing accountability for learning.
Your organization must have the right mentality, processes, tools and resources in place, so new hires feel comfortable with their team and their ability to perform their role.
Sales enablement managers and trainers face a new world of remote teams, but they must continue to build their sales force.
