“In such a talent driven business world, each new employee represents a valuable HR investment,” says Lewis Garrad, managing director Asia Pacific at Sirota.
“However, our work has shown that the engagement and enthusiasm of new employees erodes quickly, by as much as 20% in the first six months of joining.”
So, what can you do to keep new staff on board and excited about their job and career prospects?
Human Resources is proud to welcome Sirota as a sponsor for Employee Effectiveness 2014, the region’s upcoming premier learning and development conference, where Garrad will deliver a keynote on the importance and ROI of induction programmes.
“It’s critical that new hires are having the right experience at the right time,” he adds. “Initially feeling welcomed and supported, then connected to their team and the company and then eventually achieving a sense of growth and development, all within the first year.”
Before relocating to Singapore, Garrad was Sirota’s regional vice president for Europe, Middle-East and Africa where his team delivered global projects for companies such as Shell, Rolls-Royce, Skype, Solvay, Tullow Oil, National Grid, Royal Ahold and TNT.
Garrad is personally responsible for the development and delivery of leader insights to these clients as well as the design and implementation for HR analytics projects.
In over 40 years of work, Sirota has compiled a robust benchmark database, leading tools and technology, and a profound understanding of how to develop and execute successful survey research programs.
It helps its clients build a partnership-driven culture, an enthusiastic workforce, and effective leadership and management practices that drive performance.
Employee Effectiveness 2014 will be held from 18-19 June at the PARKROYAL on Beach Road in Singapore.
