Making sure to set the right tone for anyone who enters the organization is of paramount importance to leaders and training professionals.
Onboarding has three goals: to inform, to welcome and to guide new hires. By focusing on these goals, you can help ensure that your onboarding program is consistently effective.
Instilling the ability to navigate change within the organization’s culture should be a key aim of an onboarding program.
Organizations are looking for strategic growth opportunities, and the companies that thrive are engaging and retaining their talent pool through effective onboarding and training.
To build an ethical workforce, companies need to foster conversations about what integrity really means and how their companies can be a force for good.
The more quickly new hires can become acclimated to their new role, the more satisfied and successful they will be in the organization.
Help new hires develop a continuous learning mindset by structuring the onboarding program as a learning journey that extends over a longer period, with decreasing “handholding” and increasing accountability for learning.
Your organization must have the right mentality, processes, tools and resources in place, so new hires feel comfortable with their team and their ability to perform their role.
Employee onboarding and employee orientation are two different animals, but too many managers make no distinction between the two.
