What does your company’s onboarding strategy look like?
According to the Harvard Business Review, many businesses don’t know how to onboard new leaders. The article, titled “Onboarding Isn’t Enough,” states onboarding at most businesses “involves not much more than bringing the executive safely on deck.” After that point, leaders are expected to have the experience and know-how to hit the ground running on their own. This approach leads to confused, ineffective leaders and ultimately breeds problems with employee turnover.
The Harvard Business Review article recommends that businesses try a different tactic, trading “onboarding” for “integration.”
