Acerca de


How do you increase the new hire success rate? By teaching new employees the skills required for success! Employees don't learn these skills in college, and once they transition into the workplace, their managers often lack the time to teach them. Now you can give new hires the tools to jumpstart their success and yours in one of the most comprehensive and compelling guides available for new employees today. Hit the Job Running is a goldmine of real world, actionable advice that provides new hires with a roadmap for successfully transitioning from student to professional. With both big-picture context and step-by-step instruction, it hits on key workplace principles unlike anything else on your bookshelf. Topics include: Written & Verbal Workplace Communications: Often cited by employers as the most desirable attribute of an ideal candidate in the NACE Job Outlook each year, it is, ironically, also the skill most lacking in new college graduates. Hit the Job Running discusses the elements of and barriers to effective communications, and provides a timeline for improved performance. Learning the Ground Rules & Developing Business Acumen: Understanding the language of business and factors affecting decision-making are both crucial to professional success. Yet, it is difficult for new employees to succeed when they are focused on deciphering the world around them. This discussion demystifies the workplace and imparts knowledge often expected from new hires, yet rarely addressed in orientation. Perhaps Nido Qubein, President of High Point University and Chairman of Great Harvest Bread Company, puts it best: "If you don't have time to develop your recent college graduates to the extent you'd like, use Hit the Job Running to train your new hires. This one-stop reading gives them the power to succeed!"
