The Assimilation Approach to Employee Onboarding

Not all organizations offer a formal orientation or onboarding program for new employees. Even so, they shouldn’t leave the process to chance.

Corporate without class
by David Zinger

“The new guy
down the hall
needs to learn
how we do
things around here.
We’ll train him
without a course
by rolling eyes,
banter at lunch, and
afternoon chocolate bribes.
He’ll fit in,
won’t make waves
and tread lightly
around cultural cubicles.”
