    Program Description: 

    Successful onboarding is an enhanced process of the typical activities that a newly hired employee might encounter during their initials days and months on a new job.  It provides a roadmap for consistent, systematic process for all new hires and their assigned department management team to follow.  When deployed organization-wide, everyone would have a place on the map from the human resources department to the new employee’s assigned department and beyond.


    Why have formal onboarding processes? How can your organization benefit from a structured onboarding program?


    How to:

      Develop the onboarding timeline

      Identify the expectation of outcomes

      Align onboarding activities with organizational strategic objectives

      Determine which players are needed to be involved

      Bridge the onboarding process into a formal organizational mentoring program

      Evaluation of Program Success


    The overall intent of a successful onboarding program is to provide a solution for new employees to feel welcomed into a new job and organization, receive proper and consistent training, and resources and feedback to perform their new position in a positive environment.  Research suggests that a successful onboarding program can reduce turnover and increase company revenues.
