In "How to Onboard New Hires At Every Level" (Harvard Business Review, June 2019) Michael Watkins and co-author Rose Hollister write, "Most large companies do a good job with the basics of signing up and orienting new employees, but far fewer have processes that address the biggest challenges these hires face in fully integrating into their teams and coming up to speed in their roles. For example, in surveys of HR executives, just 29% indicated they provided support for cultural familiarization, even though struggles with culture are a big reason newly arrived leaders fail. This lack of onboarding follow-through has major consequences for time to performance, derailment rates, and talent retention."

In a recent Power Onboarding Webinar, Michael Watkins and Genesis Leadership Consultants Rose Hollister and Elizabeth Collins shared how Genesis helped a Fortune 500 client design and implement an automated onboarding support system, combining the standard elements of provisioning and compliance with orientation resources and transition acceleration tools. The result: consistent impactful onboarding journeys for employees at all levels.
Many companies think they are doing a good job of onboarding new hires when they actually aren’t. Most large companies are effective at the basics of signing up new hires. That's important, of course. You want your new employees to complete the basic documentation, and get set up with the right workspace, support, access, and technology as soon as possible.
