5 Critical Things to Have in Place When On-boarding New Staff

1. A clearly articulated company vision and set of core values - that defines where the organization is headed

2. A clearly defined and supported work culture - that established behavioral norms and how to fit in and succeed

3. A functional and well-deployed strategic plan - to align organization efforts and show newcomers where their efforts connect to the big picture

4. Well-defined roles, responsibilities, processes and procedures - so staff members know what to do, how to do it, who's involved and who's responsible for what

5. Effective communication and feedback systems -  to tell staff members how they're doing and what's expected of them

From My Clients ......

"As a person working from a home office, being in in one of Mark's TAB groups has shown me that feedback and discussions with other professional people are very important to the success of my own business. I plan to be a part of this group for many years - and would encourage anyone who is an entrepreneur to seriously consider being a member of this group!
