Global consulting firm BlessingWhiteÂs latest offering, Fast Start®, ensures that all levels of employees in new assignments can obtain the direction, information, support and confidence they need to produce rapid results and remain engaged and successful for the long term. Whether individuals are new to an organization, newly promoted, realigned, or on rotational assignments, Fast Start® aligns them with the organizationÂs strategy, shortens their learning curve, establishes a strong partnership with their manager and accelerates their success.
Christopher Rice, BlessingWhiteÂs President and CEO, explains the need that Fast Start® addresses: "Productivity, engagement and retention hinge on an employeeÂs first months in a new role. Many organizations have well-crafted new hire orientation and new manager training programs, but unfortunately, time-strapped leaders and their new direct reports donÂt always cover the essentials: How does my job support organizational goals? What results do I need to achieve? What skills will drive my success? How do things Âget doneÂ around here? How will my manager and I partner to deliver what the organization needs? Employees with the answers to these questions will succeed."
Using the online Fast Start® process, employees take accountability from the start for contributing to the bottom line. They compare their perceptions of their job with their managerÂs and lead a structured conversation with their manager to clarify job expectations, exchange ideas for achieving required results, and agree on how to work most effectively together.
For over a decade, BlessingWhite clients have used the Fast StartÂ® process to align and engage employees in new assignments. This completely revamped online tool builds on Fast Start®Âs core concepts and meets the growing need for an easy-to-use, self-directed process. It also contains brand-new content based on BlessingWhiteÂs latest employee engagement research. New attributes include a robust online help/coaching feature, automated reminders to guide employees and their managers through the process, and a suite of implementation tools that organizations can use to position Fast StartÂ®, supplement online activities with live briefings, and measure results.
Rice comments, "Organizations canÂt wait for their employees to sort through the rules of the road. Fast Start® is a flexible tool they can use to establish clarity of expectations and effective employee-manager partnerships right from the start. Whether organizations want to improve employee onboarding, successfully promote staff into new roles, or realign talent, Fast Start helps ensure a work force focused Â and delivering on -- what matters most."
