July Tip Sheet


Welcome Mr. Coyote!

Orientation welcomes a new employee into your organization, but a successful onboarding plan takes that many steps farther. It is the last stage of the recruitment process and the first step toward long-term retention. It is a plan that integrates employees into their new work environment and oversees their progress in that critical first year of employment. A comprehensive onboarding plan should include identifying the career path for the employee, start the transition of your company culture, incorporate goal setting and evaluating what that employee needs to be successful in your organization. AcuMax provides an Impactful Onboarding Report (in View Reports) tailored to everyone who completes the assessment that should be part of your onboarding process. And, we strongly suggest a sit-down with every new employee to review their AcuMax Index results and those of their team and immediate supervisor. Maybe something along the lines of:

Wouldn’t you rather have found out about your boss that way rather than the ‘hard way” during the first 90 days of employment? Finally, be sure to extend onboarding to every new hire. A recent survey by BlueSteps found that a majority of U.S. executives received no formal workplace onboarding and those that did rated the programs received with an average score of 59. Onboarding is crucial to building a long-term employment relationship with everyone in your organization and a much easier process with the AcuMax Impactful Onboarding Report!
