Retail has become a turnstile for Employees
and I strongly believe the process that is feeding this erosion is the broken onboarding programs we all high five each other about….
… thinking they are happening.
👉 Guess what and sorry to tell you.
They are not 🤯.
Retail Onboarding is the process of integrating and preparing your New Team Member for success in the Retail industry. A good onboarding program should assist new hires in understanding the Company’s Culture, Values, and Expectations, as well as provide them with the training and resources they need to do their job effectively.
Onboarding a new Retail Team Member correctly will have an impact on your Bottom Line, Turnover and Succession Planning.
Before a New #Employee starts please ask yourself the following questions:
👉 Are you ready to Welcome a Team Member on their first day with all tools such as a the proper paperwork for the Shiny New Employee to fill out as well as their Job Description prepared in advance.
👉 Does your Team Member have a copy of their training schedule?
👉 Do you have a Mentor | Partner program to help guide your New Employee?
👉 Do you even know your New Employees name and history? It does happen that a New Hire was not hired by yourself.
👉 What does your followup program look like?
👉 Is it posted in your office?
👉 Is it inputted into your Calendar
✨ Finally, throughout the onboarding process, it is critical to provide ongoing support and feedback. Are there check-in dates? Who is responsible for checking in?
This makes them feel supported and valued, and it gives them the opportunity to ask questions and address any concerns they may have.
👊 If you answered NO to any of the above, you might as well forget about your Corporate Onboarding plan and just install a turnstile instead of a door.
