What You Need To Know About Onboarding

  1. 1. What You Need to Know About Onboarding
  2. 2. Onboarding is more than filling out forms. Forms are important and necessary, but onboarding a new employee can and should be much more. Here are a few things you should know about onboarding that can help new hires be productive sooner, be more engaged, and stay longer.
  3. 3. What is Onboarding? Onboarding is the way a new hire goes from offer letter to productive employee. It is the process of transforming a new hire into a fully functioning, integrated member of the team. A strong onboarding program connects new hires to the organization, their team, company culture, and success.
  4. 4. The days of walking into a new job and spending the first day (or more) filling out forms are numbered. As the onboarding process evolves and becomes automated, this aspect of onboarding is occurring before the employee’s first day. Automating the process helps both HR and the new hire . . . Onboarding should start before Day 1.
  5. 5. Day 1 Readiness = Day 1 Productivity Completing forms online saves resources and helps to ensure tasks are completed on time-- giving a new hire the tools they need to succeed and be productive on the first day. Whether it is assigning the new employee a computer or providing directions and instructions, engagement before start day can make the transition into an organization much smoother and reduce new hire anxiety.
  6. 6. Eighty-three percent of best-in-class organizations start onboarding prior to Day 1 by welcoming new hires warmly and tackling administrative matters in advance.
  7. 7. Throughout the recruiting process, an organization builds an employer brand. But once the offer is extended, the new hire may not have contact with their new employer for months! Onboarding can be a great way to keep in contact and help the new hire learn more about the company mission, vision, values and culture. Onboarding is an engagement opportunity.
  8. 8. Replacing an entry-level employee is typically 30-50 percent of the person’s annual salary. The number is even more severe for mid and senior-level executives. A good onboarding process helps by starting employees off on a positive note, showing new hires and existing employees that they are valued members of the organization. This helps to reduce employee turnover. Onboarding doesn’t end on the first day. . . Employee turnover is costly.
  9. 9. Onboarding is the perfect opportunity to make a positive, lasting impression on a new hire. It really is the honeymoon phase for new employees. They’ve just agreed to come and work for a new company, and they are prepared to be wowed. But the employer must deliver.
  10. 10. With strong onboarding, a new employee fully understands their role and how it fits into the organization. New employees will know what is expected, how to deliver, and what the evaluation process will be. This information helps new hires and their managers identify areas where more training might be needed and highlight potential opportunities for learning, development, and growth. Maybe add a teaser for the next section . . . Onboarding is a launch pad for future engagement and development.
  11. 11. Onboarding provides key job knowledge to rev up a new hire with key insight into their role and how they fit into the organization and its culture.
