The Challenge

A reputable pharmaceutical company was experiencing a period of high employee turnover in one of its central departments and did not have a tangible on-boarding system in place to help transition its new hires into their respective roles. Because the department is heavily dependent upon its internal processes, and because these processes are frequently changing, the new hires had a hard time keeping up with the latest rules and requirements. Although there was a buddy system in place, both the new hires and their managers had many questions surrounding the on-boarding process, and too much time was being spent looking for answers.

 

The Solution

CMK Select created an operations reference guide for the department that includes all relevant information needed to properly on-board a new employee. The guide contains a detailed overview of the company’s global processes, plus operational details specific to the department, as well as a set of key definitions, frequently-used acronyms and links to documents and web pages for easy access. Each time a new employee begins working within the department, he or she is provided with the guide as part of the department on-boarding process. The guide is carefully maintained and regularly updated as new documents and processes become available, and there is a control in place to ensure that older versions are properly archived.

 

The Results

The reference guide has become a one-stop-shop for the department’s on-boarding needs. Because each new employee is familiarized with the guide from the start, there have been far fewer questions surrounding the on-boarding process, and it has saved lots of time. In addition, it has reduced the amount of frustration experienced by both the new hires and their managers.
