4 Ways to Improve Employee Onboarding

All too often, this is the onboarding process new employees face: It starts with an awkward walk around the office, where they’re put on display and overwhelmed in the process. If they’re lucky, there’s a desk ready for them at the end of it, and if they’re really lucky, a computer. Then the new hire is left on their own to complete all of the required paperwork and training — and to hope someone remembers to check on them before lunch. 

Research confirms that this experience is sadly common. According to Gallup, only 12 percent of employees think their organization does an “excellent” job of employee onboarding. The challenges they cite include a lack of participation from current employees; an inability to track effectiveness; and programs that are too short, don’t reflect the company culture or fail to show a path to the future for new hires.

Bangkok enters top 50 most expensive locations for expatriates

 Thai cities continue to be among the biggest risers in the Cost of Living rankings, with Bangkok rising 43 places and entering the top 50 most expensive locations for the first time, at 47th place.

Empowered for Equality: How Women Can Advocate for Their Worth at Work

An important fact can’t be ignored: There is a disparity between what women and men are paid in workplaces all over America. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, a woman working full time earns an average of 80.7 cents for every dollar a man earns. While progress has been made toward workplace equality, the Institute for Women’s Policy Research estimates that gender pay parity will not be reached until 2059: a shocking 40 years away.

However, there’s a lot more to workplace equality than simply giving pay raises and title advances. To learn more, we spoke with Lauren Hasson, founder of DevelopHer: an organization that helps empower women to own their outcomes, build outstanding careers and negotiate for the salaries they deserve. She shares some proactive ways companies can level the playing field — and women can advocate for themselves at work.

1. Engage workers with events and training

Clearly, treating all employees equally is the right thing to do. Bu…
