Wayne, PA (PRWEB) May 6, 2008 —
The Global Consulting Partnership, experts in making business strategies work through people and culture, announce the release of their latest white paper: Ensuring Success through Executive Onboarding.
White paper author and tGCP director, Bob Drovdlic describes how many companies continue to incur substantial costs due to their reluctance to proactively support newly-hired or newly-promoted executives. “What struck me in doing the research,” says Drovdlic, “was that companies often expect people at the executive level to have the skills necessary to acclimate to a new role quickly and easily. It is as if, because the executive has made it this far in his or her career, he or she can adapt smoothly, no matter the situational challenges.”
Significant failure rates of newly-placed executives expose how professional experience does not necessarily guarantee success. Best practices from companies that have robust executive onboarding processes in place provide solid evidence of how effective the proactive approach can be. “Taking steps to help a new executive get up to speed is much more cost effective than trying to correct a problem once it occurs,” says Drovdlic.
tGCP shows companies how to leverage their people, culture, and strategy in order to drive performance to the next level. Experts in talent management, executive development and organizational performance, tGCP’s consultants optimize corporate potential for leading names in health care, transportation, financial services and manufacturing.
