Why does your company need an onboarding plan?

A 2017 CareerBuilder study found that 41% of employers believed their lack of an effective onboarding plan hurt their company. They listed low productivity, high employee turnover, lack of engagement, and missed revenue targets as consequences.

By implementing a structured onboarding plan, companies can:

  1. Increase Retention

Hires who had a negative onboarding experience are twice as likely to seek a new job shortly after, and 28% leave within six months. That comes with a hefty price tag when you consider that the average employer spends $4,000 and 24 days to replace them. …

Let me run something by you real quick. “You get paid to doodle? Wow! I should have gone for a career in design; I bet I would rock that.” These words can be somewhat hurtful when it comes to asking designers what they do.

The vastness of ‘design’ can be somewhat overwhelming with fields that range from graphic to fashion, from User Experience…

Instead of releasing only major increments twice a decade, they are releasing Java updates twice a year and a LTS (long term support release) version every three years. Therefore, it…

Before describing what a non-fungible token (NFT) is, let’s start with “fungibility.” It’s the ability of an asset to be exchanged with another similar asset without compromising its value. The fungibility of an asset defines the characteristics of the asset — like divisibility and value. To give a simple example: $100 dollar has the same value as another $100 bill. When someone lends you a $100 bill, you don’t necessarily have to refund them with the exact same note, as another note with the same value is worth the same amount. …
