When properly designed and enthusiastically delivered, orientation conveys an indelible first impression, shapes still-malleable attitudes, and clearly shows what the organization expects and what an employee can expect in return.
First impressions are lasting impressions. Savvy companies already know this and have moved from old-style and less-than-engaging orientations to highly effective immersion programs that prepare new hires and their managers for mutual success.
For more than two decades, we have developed groundbreaking programs for organizations that include Pepsi-Cola, General Cinema Theatres, Kennecott-RTZ, as well scores of others in nearly every business sector.
We have shown organizations that onboarding is:
- Perhaps the least expensive investment they can make toward the success of hires
- Not an event, but a long-term process
- About acculturation and setting realistic expectations
- A means to offer a unified portrait throughout the organization
- A tool not for new hires, but also as a re-alignment and re-energizing tool for existing employees.
The end result is not only better prepared and more satisfied new hires, but increased productivity and higher retention.
Onboarding will not only pay for itself, but can potentially save tens of thousands to millions of dollars, based on the size of the organization.
We have earned a national reputation for this innovative model. Chuck Goldstone is a speaker and spokesperson for employee acculturation. He has been a national blogger on onboarding for the Association for Talent Development through its Community of Practices.
