My first shot at writing a book was about 11 years ago. The book was to be titled, "Welcome Home," and its basic premise was that onboarding new staff during the first 90 days should be similar to welcoming guests into your home or community. The first 90 days is crucial to new hires, and to employers as well. Up to 25% of new hires leave during the first 90 days. Those hires could have cost healthcare organizations millions of dollars a year. I contend that like any organization where someone is "new..." a workplace, a church, a community, a school... that it is the organization's responsibility to make the newcomer feel welcome. Let's examine the case of Pauline. Pauline was hired by a health system to be a clinical researcher. She had several years experience as a floor nurse, and she wanted to move away from floor nursing. Her former employer was not able to provide her with opportunities to leave floor nursing, so she accepted the new position.
