Your New Key Employee Is On Board -
just hired a key manager, given him a great salary, and top notch
benefits; but what have you done to ensure his success?
The answer to that question is commonly another
question..."What do you mean?"
Dr. Mark Friedman, PhD Industrial and Organizational Psychology,
and executive coach said, "Fifty-percent of new executives either
quit or are fired within the first three years and forty percent of those
new hires will fail within the first 18 months."
can ill afford to spend time and money hiring the best and brightest only
to count it a failure shortly thereafter and start the process all over
again. When highly qualified
and experienced professionals assume a new role, they are faced with many
challenges. This is
especially true when the individual is entering a new organization.
A major mistake of companies hiring experienced personnel is
believing that they don't need on-boarding, but research shows that new
employees with significant experience are the most difficult group to
socialize to values of a new company.
On-boarding is a comprehensive process by which your employees are socialized
into your company's philosophy and culture in addition to being oriented
into their specific job tasks. Our
on-boarding services enable new leaders to jump start their success by
identifying key organizational priorities and critical imperatives, and
then aids those leaders in focusing their efforts towards achieving them.
We teach them to capitalize on their strengths and develop their
soft spots so they add value immediately. Our professional coaches and
industry experts help new leaders develop action plans that ensure early
services include the following deliverables:
define challenges and outcomes desired
leadership strengths and development needs and build a development
about personality types and how to most effectively interact with
On-Boarding Goals & Action Planning
collected during the assessment phase will help your new team members
establish clear and specific goals and action plans
scheduled meetings focusing on implementing the action plan including
successes, roadblocks, and how to overcome those roadblocks

costs for a new hire can run anywhere from 150% to 400% of base salary.
Research shows that an effective on-boarding program promotes
higher job satisfaction, better job performance, greater organizational
commitment, and reduction in stress and intent to quit.
On boarding gives your company an edge when it comes to retaining a
competitive advantage in an increasingly mobile and globalized workforce.

more than 30 upstream disciplines at
We All Need To Get Certified Now?
Interesting developments within the
geosciences community in Texas may show a trend that could potentially
affect other professional disciplines and personnel working for operating
and service companies in other states.
Quietly, and unobserved by many,
the Texas Board of Professional Geoscientists proposed rule changes in
September 2011 that may have an effect on professionals working both
independently or in oil and gas companies.
A workgroup was created to review the list of current exemptions
from certification for geologists working in oil and gas. The working group had come up with a number of areas where
geologists would be required to be certified, if the proposal came to
pass. This would have clearly
included those professionals who work in operating companies as well, not
just professional consulting services firms where certification is fairly
This would have affected those
- Work in public companies and are involved in the
financial reporting process;
- Work for companies that seek capital funding on
the public market;
- Work in areas where reports and plans are
prepared that involve shale fracturing operations; and
- Those who work in conjunction with others
determining and reporting on CO2 emissions.
Don't be alarmed; these are very
specific focus areas for a finite group of professionals.
And the bill did eventually not come to pass this time.
The fact that this change is considered at all made us think that a
trend could already be under way that will result in many more new rules
Although this bill started out in
Texas, those familiar with the idea are already talking about some kind of
"California Effect" at work.
What that means is that sine the 1970s, the state of California has
been on the leading edge of many major environmental regulations, consumer
protection standards, and many social agenda reform items.
A large number of these new rules did not stay in California for
long but where adopted by other states over time in successive order.
Using that analogy and transferring it to this matter at hand
enhanced certification requirements may not be far off for other areas of
expertise in and outside of Texas.
So, the question is:
How far are we from "compulsory certification" for many
more professionals in our industry, no just those working in consulting,
auditing, or regulatory firms? This could require a huge effort and a lot of time and money
but also could present opportunities for companies assisting firms to get
the certifications they need for their employees.
We are still far away from broad
adoption of certifications rules, but it does not hurt to pay attention to
what is coming down the pipe. Keep
a very close eye on it as you are deciding what career improvements you
undertake. Certification may
not have been in the front of your mind, but it may become something that
would be to your benefit to understand in advance!
