Culture eats strategy for breakfast. – Peter Drucker
After podcasting about our hiring strategies a few months ago, we had a few listeners write in and ask us how we handle our onboarding practices once we do make a decision to bring in a new team member. So, today’s podcast is all about how we onboard our new hires to ensure their immediate success. As you listen, you’ll see that, for us, it’s all about culture and very little about technical job skills.
Some of the main points we hit on include:
- Why culture is king
- Team one-on-one meetings
- Each person’s appointed mentor or guide
- The Playbook
- Goal setting and more
I hope you find today’s conversation impactful for your organization or team and find new ideas to implement into your onboarding practices.
Question: Are your onboarding strategies more about culture or job function? How could you be more creative with this important transition for a new team member?
