New Hire Onboarding Is A Lot Like Renting A Car

Do you speed a new hire along the on-ramp or make them wait at the rental desk?

I'm going to make a rather large assumption at the beginning here and that is you travel and sometimes you rent a car at the airport.


If you do this regularly you may be tempted to become a valued member of the loyalty program for the rental car company of your choice. When you do, what happens next is really quite astounding the next time you rent a vehicle from your chosen company.

Considering that "Big Blue" is going pink, at least to their internal teams, the message is clear from the start that this marks something new - a radical change from their traditional approach to software updates.
