Effective onboarding practices are critical to an organization’s performance management. In an age of continuous change, it’s more critical than ever to ensure that employees are continuously onboarded in order to do what they need to be doing to meet the organization’s goals. In fact, this is one of the five areas that organizations need to master if they are to truly improve their performance, along with accountability systems, leadership skill building, sequencing, managing performance, and communication. If your organization is struggling with continuous onboarding and performance management, here are some questions to ask:
Accountability System: Is your leadership evaluation holding people accountable for outcomes?
Leadership Skill Building: Is leadership skill building happening continuously?
Sequencing: Is your sequencing right? Are you implementing the right steps in the right order?
Managing Performance: Are you managing performance well?
Communication: Are you communicating the why along with the what and the how behind what you are asking them to do?
