Reinvent Your Onboarding Process

Posted By Editor, Laurie, Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Contributed by Holly Burkett, Ph.D., SPHR, HR West 2018 Speaker*

At Cirrus Logic, ranked eighth on the 2015 Great Place to Work® Best Medium Workplaces list, new hires are immersed in a culture camp called the School of Cirrus Rocks. At the camp, participants first learn about company values through storytelling. They then break into groups and create a story in the form of a song about working at the company. Later, they meet at a local bar with local musicians to perform their songs and get cheered on by their teams and supervisors.

While many organizations prefer more structure to onboarding programs, others follow a sink-or-swim approach, where new employees must figure out on their own what the team and the organization expects from them. Whatever form onboarding takes in your workplace, it is one of the most important contributions a hiring manager or HR professional can make to talent retention, employee engagement and organizational performance.

What Is Onboarding and Why Does It Matter?  Continue reading on the HR West Blog.

An Invitation to Empathy …one year later

Posted By Editor, Laurie, Tuesday, November 7, 2017
Updated: Friday, November 3, 2017

By Brett Culp – HR West 2018 Keynote

Last November, I sat in a living room with 10 people of diverse viewpoints sharing their hearts. They talked openly about their struggles and fears. Tricia and I were invited to facilitate the discussion, but we cried right along with them.

I wish you could have been there. My heart was filled with hope watching these people build connection with each other from love, even when they knew they didn’t agree on everything.

Healthy relationships and communities are built on speaking and listening well. I believe the events of the last year are an opportunity for all of us to do this together.  Right now, some of our deepest beliefs and anxieties are coming to the surface.

Whatever your opinions are, whomever you voted for, you have a choice:

Are your Employees Stressed at Work? Make Sure PTO Policies Aren’t a Contributing Factor!

Posted By Editor, Laurie, Thursday, October 5, 2017
Updated: Thursday, October 5, 2017

Reasons for this stress included catching up on missed work and resolving major issues that occurred when employees were away. With that stress can come negative side effects like decreased productivity at work, lack of focus, irritability, depression and more. So, what can companies do to help? Review PTO policies to make sure they aren’t a contributing factor. 

Make sure employees are aware of the company’s policies regarding PTO and revise those policies to be employee-friendly. >> Read the article on the HR West Blog
