Use The First 90 Days to Accelerate Everyone
Many companies think they are doing a good job of onboarding new hires when they actually aren’t.
Most large companies are effective at the basics of signing up new hires. That’s important, of course. You want your new employees to complete the basic documentation, and get set up with the right workspace, support, access, and technology, as soon as possible.
Lots of companies also do a reasonably good job of orienting new hires. They provide them with essential information about the company, it’s history, strategy, organization, products, and policies.
However real onboarding is about much more than getting new people signed up and oriented. It’s about integrating new hires by accelerating their learning, connecting them with key stakeholders, and helping them understand how to get things done. The sooner your new hires do so, the more productive they will be. Support for transition acceleration also has been shown to dramatically reduce failure rates and increase talent retention.
Unfortunately, few companies do a great job of helping new employees integrate as rapidly as possible. If you ask HR leaders whether their companies have an onboarding system, the answer often is yes. However, if you inquire as to whether it goes beyond the basics of sign-up and orientation, the answer too often is no.
If that is the case for your company, does that mean you need to throw away your existing onboarding system? Fortunately not. It’s likely you already have many elements of a great system, and it’s straightforward to add the elements you need to better integrate your new hires.
This is why we developed our new First 90 Days Onboarding Modules. These are eLearning tools, modular workshops, and blended combinations designed to be integrated into existing onboarding processes and development programs. All of them guide your new hires in creating and sharing First 90 Days plans. Implementation options include:
- The First 90 Days Online: XLR8, a single-module, 45 minute, LMS-based transition planning tool designed for individual contributors and managers
- The First 90 Days Online: Leader Edition, an eight-module LMS-based transition planning tool for senior managers and directors designed to be augmented with virtual coaching
- ½-day, 1-day, or 2-day Taking Charge Workshop modules augmented with “get off to a strong start” eLearning elements
- Acceleration Coaching® for Onboarding Executives, a full scope, high-impact transition coaching process delivered by our global network of experienced transition coaches
Genesis Advisers will train your HRBPs, coaches, and facilitators to deliver the First 90 Days Onboarding Modules. This includes training HR business partners and internal coaches to use The First 90 Days Online: Leader Edition, and preparing internal facilitators to deliver the Workshop Modules, either stand-alone or as part of existing onboarding processes or development programs.
Workshop materials can be customized and delivered globally using our print-and-ship service. Our eLearning tools can be implemented on your company’s LMS, or we can deploy them for you through our Litmos LMS platform.
