Onboarding is a crucial activity that determines how new team members look at the organization and how quickly they integrate into the culture.
A solid base is critical for anything to thrive, and this statement holds true for training.
Effective virtual onboarding is one of the most meaningful and effective learning interventions you can invest in.
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.
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.
Employee onboarding and employee orientation are two different animals, but too many managers make no distinction between the two.
Effective onboarding can significantly improve employee retention and help guide new employees on the path to success in their new role.
Two themes emerge that all teams should consider when creating new training programs: immersive employee engagement and practicing what you preach.
