The Other Side of Onboarding: Laying the Foundation for Job Satisfaction and Engagement

Price per copy

Duration: 90 minutes

When people think of onboarding, they often think of helping new employees adapt to the company culture, or “fit.” But that’s not the only place onboarding often falls short. The reality is that most early turnover can be blamed on a disconnect between job expectations and the realities of the job.

When top performers are hired to “play a vital role in the company” but end up performing mostly administrative or repetitive tasks, job dissatisfaction and low morale creep in. They disengage and, eventually, leave. 

So what’s the solution? 

Should you avoid telling candidates that they’ll play an essential role in the organization? NO! The best talent wants to make a difference. 

Should you lower your qualifications for jobs that have a less obvious impact on the organization? NO! Having top performers in every position is how you build a healthy, sustainable organization.

The solution lies in how you talk to new employees about their position in the company. Without changing a single aspect of their job, you can help new employees see and appreciate the impact their work has.
