Connect new employees with Web 2.0

New employees can feel out of place and lonely during their first few weeks of work and are on the outside of an intricate social network that will take time to become a part of.

Studies have shown that in about 85% of companies, new hire passion and morale dramatically declines after the first six months.

Some organizations are keeping the passion alive by connecting new employees with others in the organization through social networking tools. It involves a lot of trust in your employees to use the tools for strictly work purposes, but the benefits may heavily outweigh the risk.

Thanks to the HR Capitalist for finding this insightful mini-presentation by Sacha Chua, complete with superbly drawn stick figures, on how Web 2.0 can help connect new hires faster than before.
