The cost of bad management is high! Good people can be good employees and have good intentions but become bad managers, and organizations cannot afford to have bad managers!
Typically, a "first day" on the job looks like a lot of paperwork, not much interaction and a definite start off on the wrong foot. Instead of sending the message to new hires that they are being courted for long-term commitment, organizations welcome them in a cold, sterile and less than exciting way. First impressions are too important to keep doing them the wrong way!
