Forward Thinking Sales Leaders Understand the Link between Onboarding Programs and High-Performing New Hires
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - July 3, 2013 - Bringing new employees up to speed quickly and effectively is essential for all organizations, regardless of industry. Effective sales leadership groups use on-boarding programs to smoothly transform new hires into productive employees. Leaders also use this time to encourage employee engagement and retention, although these elements are often under-emphasized.
Despite the critical nature of on-boarding programs for new employees, a recent Best Practices, LLC study found that only 10 percent of the participants conducted a productivity analysis of employees as a part of an evaluation of their on-boarding system. The study, "Commercial Onboarding Excellence: Bringing New Employees Up To Productivity Quickly and Effectively," will help sales leaders understand the most efficient on-boarding activities and effective evaluation tactics for on-boarding programs.
The report identifies key strategies used by training and development leaders to provide new hires with the tools they need to succeed. The study presents a comprehensive picture of how world-class companies optimize their commercial on-boarding training and development in a way that is cost-conscious but can support the aggressive goals of the organization.
Some important facets of on-boarding programs that are explored in this study include:
- Onboarding program elements and venues that reflect an effective approach to training new employees.
- How organizations measure the performance of their on-boarding programs and how companies can influence retention through their on-boarding programs.
- Insights into the technology platforms leading companies use in their on-boarding programs as well as benchmarks around the duration and types of technology training provided during on-boarding programs.
- Effective ways to introduce corporate culture to employees during on-boarding and pitfalls and best practices of on-boarding programs.
The 87-page study includes insights from training and development from 33 national and global organizations. The data has been segmented to show the perspective of BioPharma/Device Companies compared with all participants.
