In today’s virtual environment, facilitating a proper onboarding process for a new executive has proven to be more challenging than ever. Yet according to industry experts, organizations must be purposeful and devote significant time and resources to this process for the individual to experience early success.

Two of our HR leaders from TalentRise—Carl Kutsmode and Kristen Lampert—partnered with Christy Pearson of Strategic Talent Solutions to offer insight around the importance of laying a solid foundation for executive onboarding. We published a new E-Book, titled “The Value of Successful Executive Onboarding and Integration,” to showcase the significance of a well-defined integration process.

Here are some interesting tidbits from the E-Book:

  • Depending on the size of the organization and the complexity of the role, it can take anywhere from six months to a year to properly integrate a new executive.
  • The “four C’s” are critical in the implementation of a successful onboarding process: curriculum, community, connection, and culture.
  • 33% of all employees decide within the first week of employment if they plan to remain with an organization long-term.
  • The presence of an onboarding process can help companies experience more than 50% greater retention with new hires.
