Finally…Let New Employees Know the Real “Rules of the Road!”
New Employees Want to Know the Company’s “Unwritten Rules” and Work Culture
Even the best recruiting and hiring process does not really address what it is actually like to work for your organization. The “unwritten rules” or the culture is really not discussed but often learned through trial and error. Smart candidates pick up some clues along the way, but the true picture usually does not emerge for an often lengthy period of time.
One of the most powerful things you can do to remedy this is to create short, five-minute videos that feature thriving, informative employees telling their “stories.” These easy-to-produce videos feature employees from all walks of life and the organization — telling new employees what it took for them to break into their new roles and succeed, and what behaviors at first tripped them up and are frowned on!
Social Learning Platforms and Mentors Will Help New Hires Succeed
Be sure to feature these videos on a social learning platform so new employees can post comments and ask questions (all assessed by you.)
Your new employees want to get through this uncomfortable, stressful period; and learn your culture rapidly! This new tool helps them become productive quickly and avoid any “land mines” they have no way yet…of knowing are there!
In addition, they get to meet seasoned employees virtually, have the opportunity to interact with; and get connected in an easy, friendly, and efficient way.
