Best Practices for Onboarding: Ensuring Successful Assimilation
The key to any organization’s ability to execute strategy and achieve objectives is an effective workforce. A highly competitive business landscape demands that all employees perform at the highest levels as both individual and team contributors — aligned with and committed to achieving the organization’s goals. This becomes even more critical when making mid career or senior level hires. The expectation for new executives is that they will hit the ground running at their new company and start adding value immediately.
Aligning Leadership Behavior to Drive Business Results
Significant shifts in market needs have created swift and complex changes in organizational business models, strategies and goals, driving a need for new leadership behaviors. However, many leaders are not prepared to meet current challenges and are unable to bridge the skills gap on their own. What’s at risk for organizations? Nothing less than their ability to effectively execute the strategy and achieve performance goals.
Is Your Talent Pipeline at Risk?
Organizations that effectively engage employees realize a significant advantage over competitors — including performance gains that lead directly to improved financial results. Without a strategic approach to talent that includes a focus on employee engagement, many companies fail to ensure employees are satisfied in their roles and committed to achieving key strategic goals — risking turnover of key players and the inability to meet overall business objectives.

Global Trends in Separation Practices
Organizations find that separation benefits provided to terminated employees impact the morale of remaining employees, according to a new study, Global Trends in Separation Practices. The study of more than 1200 business leaders from 45 countries shows a company's decisions about separating employees, including severance pay, outplacement support, and other continuing benefits, can create ripple effects across the entire enterprise long after the departing employees have left the organization, even affecting the company's brand and public image.
