- Describe the differences between onboarding and orientation.
- Review the benefits of effective onboarding: short-term and long-term.
- Explain onboarding as a business strategy (not simply as a human resources checkpoint).
- Explore the components of an onboarding plan, from pre-hire to first year anniversary, to use in your own company process.
- Review case studies of successful onboarding strategies
A company’s onboarding practices should be a key aspect of regular business operations. With the high cost of employee turnover and recruiting, business leaders need to understand the dynamics of effectively bringing on new employees to ensure their success. Simply writing down a plan or taking new hires through the mere basics of hiring documents such as the employee handbook and policy sign-off’s will not help new employees to succeed. The key is to engage leaders and current employees to guide new hires on understanding, integrating, and contributing to the company.
This training is designed to help you create or upgrade your own company onboarding program to help your new hires to quickly get grounded, integrated, engaged – so that can actively contribute to your company’s initiatives.
Why Should You Attend
Hiring managers, human resources, and business leaders are understandably relieved, excited, and optimistic when a new employee is hired. But there’s still important steps to take so that your new hire feels welcome and prepared to jump into their job. Simply put, the better and faster they’re integrated into the company, the more quickly they’ll be able to successfully contribute to organizational success.
