There’s a lot more to Onboarding than the first day and week. Guests Michael Watkins, author of ‘The First 90 Days’ and Christoph Drebes, founder of Mystery Minds, walk us through the steps we can take to support our new employees: how do we invest in their learning process? How does onboarding internal promotions differ from external hires? What about junior vs senior employees? Plus: what you need to know about getting to the break-even point.
Michael Watkins is the author of ‘The First 90 Days: Proven Strategies for Getting Up to Speed Faster and Smarter’, a book The Economist has dubbed “the onboarding bible.” He's the co-founder of Boston-based consultancy Genesis Advisers, and Professor of Leadership and Organizational Change at the IMD Business School in Switzerland.
Christoph Drebes is the co-founder of Mystery Minds, a platform aiming to humanise the digital world by offering innovative networking and collaboration solutions.
