Onboarding Is Your Foundation For the Employee Experience

HR Bartender

Organizations understand that the onboarding process is important. I think the challenge is deciding what should be included. Companies grapple with balancing the “welcoming employee experience” part with the “legal and compliance” piece. During this year’s SilkRoad Connections Conference , Madeline Laurano, co-founder of Aptitude Research Partners , shared that an organization’s onboarding strategy should define the two touchpoints in the employee experience: pre-hire and post-hire.

Personalization Creates Engagement – Friday Distraction

HR Bartender

Years ago, I worked for a boss that had a daily habit of three Venti Starbucks. Early in the morning, he would walk by my office and if I was there, he would stick his head in the office and say, “Let’s get some coffee.” I attribute some of my fondness of Starbucks to these meetings.

(No, No, I didn’t leave because of my boss.)
