Onboarding, Is It Really That Important?

Written by

Imagine showing up to your first day of work and you’re overdressed. You assumed the company was somewhat formal in their dress code but upon arrival, you realize that everyone wears jeans and t-shirts to work. It’s not the end of the world but it still makes you feel awkward. Your manager then shows you to your desk and it’s covered in a thick layer of dust and is missing a keyboard. Someone finds a keyboard for you and you try to log into your computer except it’s locked by a password. Your manager directs you to IT but you don’t know who that is or where they sit so you wander for a bit until someone finally helps you. You are then told to fill out an enormous stack of paperwork. You’re not sure what it’s all for but your manager says that it’s required, so you sign everything hoping to figure out their purpose later. You then sit at your desk for the next several hours because your manager doesn’t have time to really get into training just yet, before heading home for the day.

It’s the Little Things that Count

Written by

These days it seems like it’s getting harder and harder to compete with all the flourish and flair many start-ups and tech companies offer. Take Google, for example; they offer their employees things like gourmet cafeterias, video games, nap pods, massage rooms, and rock climbing walls all for free. Employees can even do their laundry at work for free. They can get a haircut for free. They can start a friendly volleyball game during work hours if they wanted to; they just need to head down to the volleyball courts.
