How to Onboard New Hires at Every Level

Posted by Genesis on July 18, 2019 at 7:56 AM

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.

Onboarding Isn't Enough: You Need to Integrate Your Executives

Posted by Genesis on May 30, 2019 at 6:25 AM

In "Onboarding Isn't Enough" (Harvard Business Review, June 2017), Michael Watkins writes, "Many businesses think they are doing a good job of executive onboarding when they actually aren’t. Nearly all large companies are competent at the administrative basics of signing up new hires. However, many do surprisingly little to help onboarding executives understand the business, integrate into the culture, and connect with key stakeholders. Companies vary vastly in how much effort they put into the integration of executive hires, with major consequences for time to performance, derailment rates, and talent retention."
