Onboarding Diary – Thoughts from a newbie

  Hey there,   My name is Jess Moran and I am the newest member to the team here at HR Search. Hooray! This is my first experience of remote on-boarding, which is so exciting and also terrifying! Today in this post I want to share with you all my experience with remote onboarding and also to remind everyone we’re all in the same boat.   Let’s get started.   General – new starter bits and bobs   It’s always a learning curve when you join a new organisation and you feel like you need to ‘know it all’, but it’s important to get comfortable knowing what you don’t know as it is only a temporary feeling. My experience onboarding with HR Search has been amazing, I have been welcomed with so much warmth, happiness and support from the beginning. Your first few weeks on boarding is so important.

Dweck proposes that people’s learning style/mindset can be categorised into two, a fixed mindset and a growth mindset which in summary can be described as follows: A fixed mindset are those who believe that their talents and achievements in their career and indeed their personal life are innate in them and that they are essentially born with their strengths and talents. Those with a growth mindset are “individuals who believe their talents can be developed through hard work, good strategies and input from others.” The see failure not as evidence of unintelligence but rather as a foundation and springboard to learn and grow from. People with this mindset not discouraged by failure, but they don’t actually see themselves as failing in those situations — [...]
