Become fully productive in your new job fast and integrate well into your team so you can demonstrate a strong performance.
You got the job? Congratulations! You’ll now enter the phase of onboarding which is literally about ‘getting on board’. Think of the analogy with a ship. Once on board, it’s time to meet the captain and his crew, to learn the ropes and become acquainted with every corner of the ship. Who’s at the rudder, where are we headed - and what is your role in this voyage?
Did you know that 22% of turnover occurs in the first 45 days? That means that out of all the people leaving a particular organization nearly one quarter leaves within the first two months. Needless to say what the size of loss is on the organizational and individual side: money, emotions, trust, security and time are negatively impacted for both. This is why onboarding is such a critical phase in every new job – it can determine whether or not you find your grip in the organization fast. Great companies are aware of the importance of onboarding and how much employees need support when entering a new role. A good onboarding program is not a cost for the organization, but a smart investment that pays back enormously. Unfortunately, structured onboarding in the form of formal support programs is not a standard practice in corporations, especially for entry level positions. That is why alternative routes towards the needed support and proactive employees’ approach becomes vital.
