Mentoring New Employees: The Secret To Reduced Churn?

Mentoring new employees can be tricky.

Think back to a time when you stepped into unfamiliar territory. Can you remember how intimidating it was? That’s the dilemma each new employee faces. 

They need to acclimatize to a new culture, a new team, a new role, and new responsibilities. It’s daunting having to walk into an environment where everyone except you knows what they’re doing. 

Mentors are responsible for offering a support base for the new hire to get settled in their role quicker. These mentors use their past experiences to offer sound guidance, helping build the new employee’s confidence and skills from the get-go. 

Mentoring new employees happens during onboarding, but how can you make the most of it? In this Process Street post, I’m taking you through the mentoring program and how it can be your secret weapon to reduce new hire churn

SOC 2 Compliance Made Easy (with Process Street & Drata)

soc 2 compliance faster easier than ever

SOC 2 has a reputation for being difficult and complex. You could argue that this is by design, since you need help from a small group of top-notch, pricey experts to be compliant. 

A kinder view is that it’s just how info security operates (there’s no one-size-fits-all fix). 

To set up the right protections, a company has to either create them according to the risks they face, or narrow down a huge list of possible controls, again, considering the risks. 

In a nutshell, SOC 2 goes with the first option: it sets broad criteria and lets each organization come up with controls to meet those criteria, based on their unique risks. Sounds reasonable, but it’s not exactly a walk in the park for those who aren’t experts.

That’s where both workflow automation and compliance automation software can come in handy.  

In this post I’ll introduce you to Drata and Process Street, two essential tools that, when used together, provide a complete solution to help you speed up and simplify your yearly SOC 2 compliance.

The Secret to Unblocking Your Business Bottlenecks

Unblock any business bottleneck

If your processes are designed and run properly, you likely shouldn’t have any delays. 

But what if the great processes that you’ve constructed to the nines are still delivering delayed outputs? Did you miss something? Is the process simply not good enough? 

NO. 

If your processes are good, there could be another reason for delays. The answer: Bottlenecks. 

Think of your processes as a sunny day at the beach. You’ve come prepared with sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, snacks, an umbrella, and tons of water. But in the middle of your beach day, you run out of the water screaming with a jellyfish attached to your leg. 

The jellyfish is the bottleneck, and trust me, it stings just as bad for your business when one of those babies wraps itself around your company processes

The only difference is you can’t plan for the jellyfish. You can plan for bottlenecks with an effective process management strategy

Here’s how:
