On-Boarding: How to Shorten Ramp-up Times for Employees

Research shows that when managers get involved the process of bringing a new employee up-to-speed, the new hire learns what they need to know much faster.  That means you get a team member who can deliver results that much sooner.

But how is it done? Find out in this terrific webinar from the Ken Blanchard team.

In many organizations, on-boarding is little more than making sure new people feel comfortable in the department. That only gets you so far. Master Certified Coach Madeleine Homan-Blanchard will share three strategies managers can use to get their people off to a fast start. You’ll learn how to:

Paint the Picture: Managers often hope their employees will read their minds regarding the new job. Learn how to create a picture of what a good job looks like and how to monitor that your employee has “gotten” it.

Share your Leadership Point of View:  Don’t encourage new hires to spend their time “boss watching.” Take the mystery out of what you expect by spelling out your beliefs and expectations.

Map Relationships: Today’s work requires collaboration and an exchange between people. Help your new hire understand how things really get done in your organization by drawing them a map of who is who, and what is what.

Don’t miss this opportunity to take a more proactive approach to getting people up to speed quickly.
