Onboarding: Are you enacting the lemon law strategy?

I recently worked with a company on its talent management strategy, and I heard a number of things from focus groups, including:

• Employees accepted the position because it was a
job, not for a higher purpose.
• Employees were never told why they were hired
and what would make them successful.
• Orientation was short and administratively
driven, not learner- or employee-centered.

The way an employer brings people on board makes a big difference in how employees perform, how they feel about their decision to take the job, and whether they will stay. Some employees may feel buyer’s remorse—like after buying a used car. They may
even want to take advantage of the lemon law and find a new job. Other employees may feel a sense of pride from day one. What’s the difference?

  1. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article
    or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours
    and I think we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you are interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
