Research shows that new hires are more likely to leave companies within the first 18 months of their employment. The costs of finding, attracting, hiring, onboarding and training new employees is expensive and as the qualified talent pool shrinks, companies are spending more time, money, and effort on retaining their employees. And that starts with onboarding and more importantly onboarding the managers who are leading those teams.

Episode 122: Don’t Forget About Onboarding Managers, Not Just Employees (@sharlyn_lauby)

Sharlyn Lauby is a well-known author, blogger, and consultant. You might know her from her popular HR and workplace blog, HR Bartender. She also recently published a book by SHRM on how to onboard managers. Sharlyn walks us through this podcast interview some common pitfalls to onboarding managers, why they are overlooked, and how to best approach onboarding. Afterall, managers are the most important point of contact for all your employees. They are also the reason why most managers leave their employers. Managers are critical to a successful retention program at your offices but also for driving revenue and productivity for the entire operation as well as their team(s).

Manager Onboarding: 5 Steps for Setting New Leaders Up for Success

Sharlyn’s book is for HR and business leaders who are looking for a roadmap to designing a manager onboarding program. The book touches on just a bit of theory and a whole lot of practical knowledge. It is filled with stories and examples of how companies’ onboarding programs work—both for new employees as well as managers. This interview with Sharlyn was a lot of fun. She is soft-spoken and knowledgeable about a lot of subjects from her work as a trainer and HR leader as well as her extensive research for the book.

Sharlyn believes that onboarding managers aren’t the same as management or leadership development. Those leadership development programs offer skills that employees can use immediately like communication skills, decision-making, and problem-solving. A manager onboarding program includes skills that managers need the minute they become a manager such as a workforce management and employment law. There’s a place for all of these programs.

Check out the podcast interview to hear more of Shalryn’s insights.
