Employee Onboarding

Now that your new employee is hired, roll-out the red carpet.

New employee success is often determined in the first few weeks on the job. In the talent management universe, the new employee orientation and mainstreaming process is known as "Employee Onboarding." Keep in mind that you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

Your new employee integration process is a make 'em or break 'em experience for a new employee. Your business should make absolutely sure that new fires feel welcomed, valued, and prepared for what lies ahead during your new employee orientation or onboarding process.

Onboarding New Employees with their Managers

Much of the new employee's success relies on the relationship between the new employee and their manager. We have heard for years that people don't leave companies, they leave their managers. In most cases managers do not make a conscious decision to have a poor relationship with their direct reports. Most often it is likely due to the pressures and "other" distractions that the manager is dealing with so the time is not "found" to invest in building effective understanding and relationships with the team. This is especially true when employees are new to the organization.

It is critical, however, during onboarding programs that managers and new employees understand one another in terms of:

Their individual communications preferences

Their role expectations

Do's and Don'ts for interaction

Training and development needs

Measurement and evaluation processes for work objectives

There is an unrealistic expectation that all leaders/managers should have "management radar" and understand the type of management style new employees prefer. The disconnect between employees and their managers can create a toxic environment and lead to low morale, low employee engagement and low retention levels.

Helping Managers Succeed in Employee Onboarding with the TriMetrix System

Catalyst Performance Systems' talent management tools fit easily into any onboarding programs at your organization. If your organization doesn't currently complete a new employee onboarding process, the our tools can be used as a guide to help with this process. Our tools focus on helping managers and employees understand the communication needs, motivators and personal talents of the new employee through the TriMetrix System.                                 

Real talent lies below the surface – it's also where you'll find potential problems that can blow up later on. The TriMetrix assessment process goes beyond standard behavior-based assessments to uncover what's driving behavior. It's different from other assessments because it measures three vital dimensions:

1. Behavior (on the outside)

2. Personal skills (below the surface)

3. Values (the very core of an individual's being)

Based on the results of an new hire's TriMetrix™ System Personal Report the new TriMetrix™ System Coaching Reports provide your managers with a comprehensive and flexible tool to help coach, motivate and manage your people. The reports provide insight to three distinct areas: Behaviors, Motivators and Attributes. By helping each person understand his or her strengths and weaknesses in each of the three areas, the TriMetrix™ System Coaching Reports will lead to personal and professional development and higher levels of satisfaction in their job.
