Tim Ruef, former business leader and leading HR consultant spoke yesterday at the Illinois State Council Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Conference and exhorted HR leaders to play a more significant and strategic role in the success of their organizations. Ruef's talk highlighted the value of a consultative approach to increase influence and achieve results when dealing with senior management and internal clients.

Discussing the need for partnership and collaboration Ruef noted that effective consultation often means being provacative and pushing back. Said Ruef, "this is what senior managment expects, and the source of your power and influence. Continuing, he pressed HR executives to recognize their value to bottom line business success, and to adopt a bolder mindset when dealing with senior leaders. Ruef stressed that it takes courage to effect change and make a significant impact on the organization. "You will have to take some risks," he said, "but it is worth it if you truly want to make a difference in your organization, and realize the personal benefits to you.

Speaking to an overflow audience at the Garden State SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) Annual Conference, Executive Search and HR Consultant, Tim Ruef urged participants to examine and improve their onboarding procedures for new employees if they want to improve engagement and retention, and in turn company profitability.

Noting that onboarding mistakes occur in over 50% of new hires, Ruef cited costs to the organization approaching 15 times the individual's base salary when both direct and indirect cost are considered. Drawing a sharp distinction between the traditional orientation program and onboarding, he focused on speeding the smooth transition of new hires to maximize both individual and organizational success. Working in small discussion groups the audience agreed that helping new employees adjust to the new culture and crafting individual work plans to ensure short term wins are crucial to this effort. Ruef presented findings of his own study addressing the relationship between onboarding and engagement, and noted that new employees who received effective onboarding were less stressed, and significantly more productive both in the short and long term.
Ruef then presented 10 Secrets for Success to achieve effective onboarding. The Secrets addressed key issues such as organizing key stakeholders, the importance of the first day, challenges to candidate and manager participation, development of personal success plans, the proper use of technology and individual follow up interviews. Ruef also stressed the importance of appointing what he called a "go to person" to address routine operational questions.
