IN THIS SUMMARY

Global business is steadily moving toward a more knowledge-based economy, with human capital being its greatest asset. However, while leaders tout people as a key asset, their resource prioritization rarely reflects this conviction. Although budgets for recruiting have swelled with increased demand for people with high potential, companies routinely face 10-15 percent annual attrition, a figure suggesting a need for better integration or “onboarding” of new hires into their organizations. In Successful Onboarding, Mark A. Stein and Lilith Christiansen claim that a truly successful onboarding program surpasses the brief series of orientations typical of most organizations. To realize the full value of the Onboarding Margin, companies must design a comprehensive, year-long program that is given the administration and governance comparable to other key strategic initiatives.
