The On-Board+30 Stage of Gulf Stream Search’s Talent Acquisition Methodology™ closes off your Gold Standard Hire’s “candidate experience.”
When asked to describe why they left a role after less than 6 months, the most often heard reply is that the company and/or recruiter promised something during the interview process and once on board, everything changed.
Another complaint that arises is that elements of relocation packages, sign-on bonuses, on-boarding and training are either not executed or not coordinated as had been promised during the interview process.
It’s unfortunate but true – a mis-step here or there in an otherwise flawlessly executed search can have drastic consequences on a new hire’s experience.
Imagine a meal at a 5-Star restaurant with family and friends that goes off flawlessly, only to find out the next morning that the valet stole valuables from the car of one of your guests.
Imagine a relaxing weekend at a beachfront resort where you were able to recharge your batteries, enjoy great meals viewing the ocean and beautiful sunsets. 30 days later, your credit card bill arrives with “hidden charges” from that weekend that the resort didn’t disclose. Worse yet, the resort staff refused to refund the charges and was indignant you called to question the charges.
It’s no different when a new hire’s on-boarding experience destroys the goodwill that was created during the hiring process.
In Talent Acquisition, a flawlessly executed hiring process, followed by an on-boarding experience that aligns with what the new hire was promised during the interview process is the key to future employee referrals.
It’s the grease that skids the wheels for a new hire to develop quickly into a huge contributor – Gulf Stream Search works in concert with Talent Acquisition, the Role Sponsor, the On-Boarding team to ensure that all elements of the new hire’s on-boarding experience exceeds their expectations.
Gulf Stream Search’s On-Board+30 is another value-add stage in its Talent Acquisition Methodology™.
