Marry Strategy With Business Imperative

Understanding the 'business imperative' (goal or major challenge) is central to our onboarding process.

Each situation poses varying challenges and opportunities, all requiring a different strategy. It is essential for the recruit or transferee to adapt to the context of the situation they face. A detailed understanding of the direction the company is heading in enables appropriate strategies to be developed and wins to be gained.

Putting Things Into Perspective

  • Understanding The Long Term Strategic Goals -  it is important for the new entrant or recruit to understand the long term goals of the business in order to align their planning process correctly. They will be unable to effectively plan without this understanding. Our role is to make sure the individual has a perfect interpretation of the businesses long term plan.
  • Determine Business Imperative -  whilst they will have a clear understanding of the long term plans and objectives, it is very common that there are a handful of shorter term objectives key to the delivery of short term success for both the individual and the business. It is these short term goals that are the business imperatives. This makes understanding them key to the onboarding process.
  • SWOT The New Hirer -  in order to get the very best from the individual, having a clear understanding of what their strengths and weaknesses are is very important. As well as this it's key to understand the opportunities that the individual can bring. With every new employment there is also risk associated with a new entrant or recruit, we must be aware of what these threats could be, this is why we SWOT the new hire, so as to get a really good understanding in all areas.
  • Develop The Plan -  we work with you and the individual to develop a written learning and doing plan, which should be consistent with the business imperatives and company strategy.
  • Skills Training -  it is unrealistic to think that the individual will have all the prerequisite skills to perform the new role perfectly or in fact deliver the business imperatives in the onboarding stage. We make sure the correct skills training is identified and delivered at the appropriate stages.
  • Ongoing Mentoring Support -  most importantly guidance and support is required right through every stage of the onboarding process, so we provide the most appropriate mentor for this stage, guiding the individual when delivering on the business imperatives.
