“The customized new hire on-boarding process, coaching, tools, and measurement have provided a very useful structure and frame for the first 90-days for both me and our new hires. It has been a very positive experience from my perspective and will make it much easier to on-board my new hires.”
Martyn Storey | Systems Engineer Manager | VMware, Inc.

“Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with how the new employee on-boarding project went. The end product is wonderful! LSA has been great to work with. I really appreciate all the flexibility and the high quality.”
Laurie Torres | Vice President of Human Resources | PDL BioPharma, Inc.

“I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed working with LSA on the design and delivery of the experiential new employee on-boarding training. I’ve been getting tons of positive unsolicited feedback. You truly exceeded everyone’s expectations.”

“We hired LSA Global to design and deliver a customized experiential new employee orientation program for our recent group of MBA new hires. The new hire program designed helped reinforce WIPRO core values. The new hire assimilation program will help the new MBA hires to build relationships with fellow associates and enhance the group’s ability to operate successfully in the global world. I recommend LSA for effective on boarding/outward bound training of new MBA hires.”

Description:
Is your speed to productivity for new hires where it should be?

Most new employees take 3-24 months to “get up to speed.” This wide disparity provides wonderful opportunities for organizations looking to decrease “ramp time.”

In a recent survey, 210 CEO’s estimated the time for a typical mid-level manager to reach “break-even” as 6.2 months. Using an average salary of $100,000, the difference between a 3-month ramp and a 6.2-month ramp is approximately $26,500 per employee. This does not account for differences in revenue, margin, utilization, or productivity. It is only the salary side of the equation. For a company hiring a minimum of 100 new employees per year, this creates a $2.6m window of opportunity for an improved new hire process. For companies closer to the 24-month mark, the opportunity is as large as $17.5m.

The main point is that, when combined with the common challenges of hiring the right employees and creating an environment for them to thrive, most organizations have ample room for improvement in their new hire processes. Unfortunately, many companies continue to struggle with the most controllable part of the equation – effectively and efficiently assimilating new employees.

To combat the eight common drivers of ineffective new hire programs, LSA offers a variety of customized and off-the-shelf new employee orientation on-boarding programs to increase the speed to productivity of new hires:

What new hires say about our new employee on-boarding solutions:

“This is the best on-boarding experience as a new hire I’ve ever had with any company.  The new hire Survivors’ Guide is incredible.”

“The new hire checklists are of great help.  The new hire Survivors’ Guide is great.  I am very happy with my progress during my first 90 day period.”

“I’m very pleased and positively surprised with this new hire orientation and onboarding program.  It’s not normal for a company invest in and train new hires in this efficacy and quality.”

What hiring managers say about new employee on-boarding:

“The guidance provided with the new hire orientation program is really valuable.  It promotes communication and collaboration and reduces the ramp up time for on-boarding new employees.”

“As a hiring manager, I was at first skeptical of the process.  Now, I mandate that all new employees go through the new hire orientation process because it saves me time and dramatically increases their speed to productivity.”

“With my success dependent upon the success of my team, getting new hires up to speed quickly is critical to support our growth plans.  The customized new hire on-boarding and orientation process is making a big difference.”

As a high growth digital marketing agency with cutting edge talent, we hired LSA Global to help clarify our strategy and work with our management team to implement it throughout the New York Office in a way that made sense for our unique culture . That work was so successful that we also hired them to coach one of our key leaders. LSA has been instrumental in helping us transition to a new leadership team and triple the revenue in our New York office. In this age of useless consultants, I highly recommend their practical and business-oriented approach to strategy, culture and talent.

We selected LSA Global over 5 other companies to help some key executives improve their overall communication and executive presentation capabilities. Feedback has been great. Everyone had a great experience and many of them are feeding some of the lessons into their teams.

Having a training outsourcing partner like LSA to support our training and development needs has been a real benefit. In an emerging company where typically you can’t afford the infrastructure necessary to provide a full range of development venues to meet the broad needs of an organization, having an external partner who understands our business and our culture and offers everything from a wide range of open enrollment programs to customized organizational development consulting is almost as good (and in some cases better than) having your own internal Training and Organizational Development function.

What a refreshing change from the half-baked psycho-babble you normally get from “training” organizations. LSA gives you the assistance you need to define and reach your goal, and then they give you a results driven plan – not just a temporary fix. They are great to work with, and even more importantly, they “get it!”

Originally, we launched a RFP to identify and partner with a sales training provider to improve the skills of the sales teams in the distributor network. However, throughout the process, LSA Global challenged our thought processes and engaged with us by suggesting that we focus on the systemic factors that create a high performance environment first, before we focused on the more symptomatic needs of sales skills training. LSA Global has identified the two strategic moves that will enable us to create a high performance environment and we continue to seek their guidance on implementing those moves, as well as other key needs.

We recently hired LSA to help us take our client delivery methodology to the next level as we continue to grow and help our clients succeed. The custom strategy and design session exceeded my expectations. They really understood our business and turned around the project within a tight timeframe. LSA’s consultants were the best I have seen for this type of project. LSA’s ability to get a group of 20+ executives from around the globe on the same page, push their thinking to new heights, and ensure an executable plan was excellent. I would recommend LSA to anyone looking to take their plans and execution to the next level.

It was a challenge to find a consultant with an approach to performance improvement that fit our unique culture and style. When we met with LSA we were surprised to discover their depth of expertise in the fields of motivation, developmental coaching and performance management and measurement.

Specifically, we were pleasantly surprised to find a company that could seamlessly integrate those three components without our folks feeling like the intervention was forced. They understood what we were trying to accomplish, helped us clarify our objectives, create a solid, refreshing approach that quickly got us moving and engaged people at all levels.

As they began to implement, I was thoroughly impressed with how they listened and made adaptations focused on our needs and business objectives. Overall, I couldn’t be happier that we found a partner in LSA.

We hired LSA to design and deliver a Project Post Mortem for 65 key people on a critical project with a very tight turnaround. LSA’s ability to identify the key trends, leverage points, and next steps was great. They really got to the heart of the issues in a constructive and unbiased manner that exceeded my expectations. It was not an easy task with so many skeptical people with different agendas, styles, experience, and perspectives.

The LSA Organizational Alignment Survey gave us a comprehensive and poignant view of how our employees experience our culture, talent and strategy.  LSA customized the questions so we received information that was targeted and very useful to us.  Equally important, the survey and implementation process goes well beyond the typical engagement survey.  The combination of questions and feedback approach provided us with a great forum to discuss the strengths and opportunities in our organization, and then to quickly get focused on the key actions critical to our strategy implementation and improving our business results.

We turned to LSA Global to help us take our executive selling and solution selling skills to the next level, which will ultimately help our customers succeed. Their ability to formally assess our situation, identify key sales skill gaps, develop a plan to measure the results, and fully implement a key sales initiative – has been outstanding. LSA delivers the full solution; not just sales training and I would recommend them to any organization looking to transform its sales force the “right way” to sell higher and wider.
