InterSearch SURVEY EXAMINES EXECUTIVE ON-BOARDING PRACTICES in companies around the world FOR THEIR NEW EXECUTIVES

on-boarding-surveyAmong companies responding to a recent InterSearch Worldwide survey, just 41 percent offer some form of executive on-boarding to their new executives, with organizational culture alignment and executive development planning topping the list. InterSearch is a leading global executive search organization operating in more than 45 countries.

“Given the importance of executive assimilation and retention – as well as building relationships and of expediting opportunities for meaningful contributions – we were surprised to find that six out of 10 companies responding to our survey do not provide any sort of executive on-boarding services at all to their new executives,” said InterSearch Chairman Frank Schelstraete.

Among the companies that do offer executive on-boarding to their new executives, the most common service was organizational culture alignment (24%), followed by executive development planning (21%). Mentoring and diversity/inclusion training each occur at 17% of respondents’ companies, while 16% offer some kind of professional development. Life coaching occurs at 3% of respondents’ companies, while media training occurs at just 2%.

In terms of other executive on-boarding services offered to new executives, respondents also named:

  • Executive coaching with an external consultant
  • Structured orientation to the business plan, to strategy and vision, as well as to the executive’s direct report team
  • Thorough follow-up meetings with all executives (after defined periods of time after their start date with the company)
  • Access and encouragement to join clubs such as Rotary and Kiwanis to accelerate assimilation into the community

Perhaps not surprisingly, some form of executive on-boarding was most common at larger companies that responded (those with annual revenue of more than US$500 million or approximately 400 million Euro), than at either medium-sized companies (annual revenue between US$50-500 million or approximately 40-400 million Euro) or small companies (annual revenue under US$50 million or approximately 40 million Euro).

InterSearch conducted the online survey of companies around the world from June through September 2013.
