The value of onboarding is indisputable. Pretty much everyone agrees that onboarding new executives, especially those in mission-critical roles, works. In fact, research shows that organizations with best in class onboarding programs* experience:

  • Significant increases in retention and hiring manager satisfaction
  • Enhanced productivity for new executives as new working relationships are jump started
  • A reduction in time spent by HR assimilating the employee
  • Decreases in organizational and individual stress
  • Greater returns on investments made when recruiting for high profile, critical roles

So why aren’t more businesses using onboarding to complement their existing orientation/acculturation programs?  Honestly, we really don’t know — except that their reluctance may be grounded in misperceptions about what onboarding needs to cover, how it’s delivered and/or its costs.

To overcome those obstacles, we provide a dedicated onboarding coach for newly hired executives for the first 100 days as part of our executive search solution — at our expense. The comprehensive one-on-one coaching program is offered through highly experienced coaches identified and managed by CoralBridge.   

If you are interested in learning more, contact us at info@talentrise.com for information about an upcoming Breakfast Briefing to be held on May 10 in Chicago or you can register here. Steve Andrews, CEO of International Equipment Solutions, a global engineered equipment company, and Charles Bishop, PhD, Principal with CoralBridge will discuss how a customized coaching program was successfully developed and conducted when the company hired a new General Manager recruited by TalentRISE. Space is limited and preference will be given to corporate attendees.
