5 Ways To Improve Your Company Onboarding

Compiled | Emma Bostian

Of course, I am thinking a lot about onboarding currently (and Spotify) so this seems like the perfect read for this week. There are a few things that can instantly improve any onboarding process, and they are all listed in this article. If you have ever felt the pain of someone leaving a company because of poor onboarding, you know how worthwhile it is to enable a better process.

Being the DRI of Your Career

Acidentally in Code | Cate | 20th September 2021

“You are the DRI of your career” (DRI: Directly Responsible Individual). This reasonates very well with me and how my career has progressed so far. I think Cate really nails five core elements of how to be the DRI of your career:

  • Expect less from your job and more from your career.
  • Learn from feedback.
  • Own your professional development.
  • Distinguish what your employer rents versus what they buy.
  • Build your support system.

Highly recommended to read the full article.
