Many new hires do not last longer than six months. One out of two new employees fails to meet the organization’s expectations. Why? Often, employers make little or no effort to acclimate these staffers to the job. Thus, their employees start off on the wrong foot, and many find it hard to “change course.” However, George Bradt and Mary Vonnegut deliver a proven program you can use to help new workers become immediately productive.

Though the guide is poorly structured in parts, it provides easy-to-follow, practical advice for bringing people on board and keeping them there.
