formal employee onboarding

Companies that invest in extended formal onboarding programs see greater levels of employee retention and shortened time to productivity. Well-timed training with relevant content prepare new hires to reach individual goals and meet company expectations. The more quickly a new hire understands company culture, business operations and how his or her role impacts organizational goals, the more quickly the employee engages and performs.

Onboarding for experienced new hires in senior or middle management roles require links to development and success. Ineffective training has the potential to drive out these employees. Experienced profiles look for challenge and professional development opportunities in their first 12 months.

  • Value efficiency and time. Automate employment forms and other HR information onto your company’s intranet for new hires to access on an “as needed basis.”
  • Seek effective ramp-up to productivity. Frequent performance reviews should be provided throughout their first year.
