A PwC survey called the 2021 Employee Financial Awareness Survey reported that 87% of employees seek help with their finances. Addition enables employees on their journey to understand personal finance, equity compensation, selling and buying shares, saving for retirement, and buying a home.

"I founded Addition because everyone should have access to the tools and resources to make smart, informed personal financial decisions. There's a gap in the market when it comes to navigating finances, and existing options are either too generic or too expensive. We partner with forward-thinking companies who want to provide inclusive access for their employees to navigate personal financial decisions and make the most out of their money."

Buddy Systems Alleviate HR Pain Points and Improve New Hire Experience, Says HR Research Firm McLean & Company

McLean & Company | August 22, 2022

McLean & Company, the globally trusted partner of HR and business leaders, has released its newest research-driven resource, titled Implement a Buddy System at Work. This data-backed guide is intended to support HR leaders in building a more consistent and effective way to help onboard new employees. With HR facing ongoing challenges like significant turnover and competition in the talent marketplace, a "buddy system" is an easy-to-implement solution that McLean & Company research indicates is effective at helping new employees acclimate to a new organization and role. Onboarding is often exciting and stressful for both the new employee and the manager, and new hires often need extra support to settle into a new role. McLean & Company's New Hire Survey Database shows employees are 1.8 times more likely to be engaged when their acclimatization experience is positive compared to those who rate their experience lower. A buddy is different from a mentor or coach. The term "buddy" refers to the internal tenured employee who assists a new employee in settling in with an organization. The buddy acts as a friendly point of contact to help new employees adjust to their roles during the first few months by providing advice, answering questions, and making introductions. The research indicates that a buddy system provides ongoing support to new hires after their initial orientation without a significant investment in time or resourcing and can alleviate some of HR's pain points with similar programs. Buddy system programs offer the following merits: Easy to implement with minimal coordination Senior-level members freed up for more formal interactions No specialized training required to be a buddy Flexibility in meeting frequency, duration, and location For employees, buddy systems are valuable and offer such benefits as: An enhanced and more personalized onboarding experience Prevention of potential isolation when hired ad hoc rather than in large groups Help with the adjustment period as new employees become familiar with team processes and organizational culture Networking opportunities and identification of key contacts within the organization Improved distribution of the time managers traditionally spends on onboarding McLean & Company explains that although the implementation of the buddy system and the buddy selection process fall under a manager's list of responsibilities, HR can impact uptake and effectiveness by designing the framework and guiding managers on how to integrate it into their onboarding processes. This framework will ensure that a consistent approach is being applied throughout the organization and that all new employees have access to an additional layer of onboarding support. About McLean & Company Through data-driven insights and proven best-practice methodologies, McLean & Company offers comprehensive resources and full-service assessments, action plans, and training to position organizations to meet today's needs and prepare for the future.
