Man­agers must bond with new re­cruits

MAN­AGERS who don’t spend time bond­ing with new re­cruits and nur­tur­ing their early ex­pe­ri­ences in the first four months of work are more likely to have ‘‘ good tal­ent’’ walk­ing out the door, a hu­man re­source ex­pert warns.

Sork HC man­ag­ing di­rec­tor An­thony Sork, who will speak at this year’s Aus­tralasian Tal­ent Con­fer­ence in Syd­ney in May, says a lack of bond­ing can cost an or­gan­i­sa­tion as much as $100,000 for each failed hire.

Sork says em­ploy­ers gen­er­ally have 120 days in which em­ploy­ees con­sciously or sub­con­sciously as­sess whether they can per­form in the role. If they fail to con­nect, they ei­ther be­come un­pro­duc­tive or re­sign.
