""Goodbye old school orientation and welcome to onboarding. A great reference to tailor your onboarding based on your culture and strategy. This book demonstrates how sound and creative onboarding can prevent a lot of voluntary off-boarding from high performing employees."---Sonia Narang, Director, Leadership & Organization Development, Sony Pictures Entertainment" ""This book has the potential to change the way that we think about new hires and what is possible from this group. With the instruction provided, you can migrate onboarding from the administrative to the strategic and deliver far greater value for your enterprise."---Betty Thompson, Senior Vice President, People Services, Booz Allen Hamilton" ""People are a company's most important asset. Successful Onboarding makes the case for the importance of effective onboarding in setting up employees for success."---Stephen Squeri, Group President, Global Services and Chief Information Officer, American Express Company" ""A comprehensive and highly practical guide to the critical---but underappreciated---practice of onboarding new employees. The authors make a convincing business case for strategic onboarding and then outline a step-by-step process for a positive and enduring outcome."---Peter Cappelli, Director, Center for Human Resources, The Wharton School, The University of Pennsylvania, and author of Talent on Demand" ""This is a terrific resource for anyone wanting to create an effective onboarding program."---Mindy Moye, Ph.D., Manager, Employee Engagement, John Deere" "Fact: One-third of all external hires are no longer with the organization after two years. Most of them begin job-searching after six months." "What can you do about it? In a word: onboarding, the fastest-growing human resources tool in the world today, although poorly understood, subject to narrow definitions, and with limited codified best practice understanding and management rigor. Global consultants Mark Stein and Lilith Christiansen have studied and worked with leading companies on the topic, and they've synthesized their work into one complete, ready-to-use system, incorporating case learnings from Fortune 500 companies and other forward-thinkers." "While many companies have become very good at recruiting, today's orientation programs fall woefully short and impact your bottom-line potential. Successful Onboarding provides you with not only the business case but also a systemic approach to the entire process---from beginning to end. You'll be amazed how significantly you can increase new hires' productivity and the strategic impact and appreciation of your HR function. You'll discover the most effective ways to share your vision, offer early career support, and strengthen your strategic position, intent, and direction. Along the way, you'll hear fascinating inside stories---the good and the bad---from Apple, Starbucks, Netflix, Microsoft, Baird, Bank of America, John Deere, and dozens of other industry leaders." "In the end, it's all about people. When your employees are effectively on board and your system is supporting their success, your company is on track to even greater performance."--BOOK JACKET.
