⏩Are you using the need for speed as an excuse?
Getting your new-hires to work as fast as possible is crucial now more than ever.
??♀️Many companies are finding that it is taking a long time to recruit the best match – so when the new hire starts – they want them to “hit the ground running.”
?Yet, this need for speed is no excuse to devalue the importance of the on-boarding process.
Because when you devalue the on-boarding process using speed as an excuse, you are just delaying the time you are going to spend backtracking in the future.
⏱The need to invest time in your new hire will have to get done upfront, in full, or you will invest time down the road fixing issues.
The type of issues you could have prevented.
And new hires can quickly get derailed temporarily (or permanently) wasting time and resources.
✅Their morale drops when they are making repeated mistakes.
✅The team loses confidence in the new hire’s ability to learn.
✅The leader has to spend additional time redirecting, retraining and worse – rehiring if the team member doesn’t succeed.
?Your job, as a leader, is to commit to an effective on-boarding process upfront, that ensures every opportunity for the new hire to be successful.
