Truth You Can Act On: 

  1. Soft Skills Are Essential Skills. These skills are what make engagement and learning stick, and having relationships with coworkers is crucial when it comes to retention. 
  2. Make Onboarding a Journey, Not an Event. Everyone has different learning styles. Onboarding is not a check-the-box thing, so it can’t be done in a few days. 
  3. Be Intentional About Building Psychological Safety. Set the stage for everyone to share their thoughts and to be heard in meetings. Psychological safety is a key driver of employee engagement. 
  4. Relationship Building. Make sure these relationship-building team events occur regularly. Bonus points if you have them offsite!
