5 Essentials for Successfully Reboarding Employees

5 Essentials for Successfully Reboarding Employees HeaderI’ll be honest: Before I was assigned to write this post, I had no idea what the term “reboarding” meant.

As it turns out, I actually did – I just didn’t have a word for it.

Reboarding is what you do when an employee comes back after an extended absence (12 weeks or more), changes role due to promotion or restructuring, or your company undergoes pretty much any major change where employees will need to adapt to new policies, procedures, and processes.

I know what you’re thinking. Reboarding. Onboarding. It’s all the same thing, right? How complicated can it be?

But reboarding is not the same as onboarding.

They’re both equally important and similar in a number of ways, but the structure, focus, and obstacles of each will be very different.

For example, everyone knows new employees need some sort of onboarding process. Not nearly as many realize that reboarding is:

  1. Something that needs to happen for even the most experienced employee;
  2. Something that needs to happen even if the employee is returning to the same role;
  3. Even a thing managers should do.

Seriously. You know what it’s like coming back from just a couple weeks of vacation. Loads to catch up on, overflowing messages, sometimes new people you’ve never seen before but everyone is already best friends with.

If things can change that much in 3 weeks, how much do you think they’ll change in 3 months?

Yeah. That’s what I thought.

So in this Process Street post, let’s look into exactly what you need to do to make this whole return-to-work thing easier. And don’t worry – I’ve broken it down to just 5 things, so for once you won’t have to slog through one 4,000 words just to get to the good stuff. My editor’s happy about that, too.

These are the things you need to know:

Let’s get you up to speed, yeah?

How To Succeed Where Others Fail 7 Tech Startup Tips

Burkhard Berger is the founder of Novum™. You can follow him on his journey from 0 to 100,000 monthly visitors on novumhq.com. His articles include some of the best growth hacking strategies and digital scaling tactics that he has learned from his own successes and failures.

The tech startup scene is one of the most popular trends that is happening in today’s time, with almost 63,700 startups being active in the US alone in 2021. That trend is only expected to grow as many more entrepreneurs try to get an awesome piece of the pie in the world of tech.

Getting into the startup scene, however, is far from pretty. With almost little or no starting money to kick things off, it can be pretty hard to climb up the ranks to be successful.

The startup world is tough, but the ones that push through and succeed are about to get into an entirely new world of business that can possibly propel them into the following generations forward in the future with their own unique market niche to cater to and support their growth all throughout the journey to becoming full-fledged tech companies.

Now with that said and done, this Process Street post will look over the reasons why tech startups fail – and how you can succeed:
