  2. 2. How-to-Guide ON-BOARDING & ORIENTATION It all started years ago, when we ourselves, as HR Professionals, came to realize the hard way, that it is highly time-consuming to find ready-to- use, straightforward HR information on the internet. The option to work with expensive consultancy firms being a budgetary challenge in the economic down-turn, we looked for other EFFICIENT ways for designing and customizing our HR instruments ourselves at a high standard. That is how our idea grew to develop pragmatic and generic how-to HR guides around HOT HR processes, such as Strategic Planning, Change Management, Performance & Talent Management! We also wanted to offer great HR tools & templates that people could download quickly and then customize to their own needs. Just like a very professional Do-It-Yourself store for all kinds of HR issues! To ensure the widely applicable usage of our products, we started connecting with senior HR think alikes across the globe, to help create and/or validate our Toolkits. As you read this, we are producing more practical tools & templates for you with this team. Don’t hesitate to send us a query through our web shop if you think of something particular you can’t find anywhere! Anne & Tania, Brussels, 2013 WE WELCOME YOU TO THE HRM TOOLSHOP ©HRM Toolshop, 2013, all rights reserved www.hrmtoolshop.com Together, we combine 40 years of HR experience across industries and geographies.

  10. 10. • It is essential that the new employee feels welcome in his/her new work environment as from his/her first working day. Therefore, thoroughly preparing the employee’s start of employment (as discussed in the previous chapter) is of utmost importance. Equally important is the organization of the new hire’s first day at work, the On-boarding Day. • The On-boarding Day is partly in the hands of the HR Department. However, in the course of the day, the new hire’s Line Manager should take over to make sure that the employee meets his/her new colleagues and hierarchy. In the On-boarding Day Program, you will find some inspiration regarding the topics that should be covered. Where appropriate, this program should be amended to suit the circumstances (e.g. newly graduate as opposed to new hire with tens of years of experience, managerial level of the employee, etc.). A.

  13. 13. • Invite the new employee for a First Impression Interview after approximately 10 weeks of service. • The objective of a First Impression Interview is to: – Build further on the professional relationship between HR and the new hire – Learn from his/ her suggestions regarding the organization of the recruitment & selection process and the on-boarding & orientation process – Get a view on how the employee feels after his/her first weeks of employment • If needed, define further orientation activities and/or other actions following the First Impression Interview.

  19. 19. WHO WE ARE How-to-Guide ON-BOARDING & ORIENTATION ©HRM Toolshop, 2013, all rights reserved www.hrmtoolshop.com My fascination for Talent Management grew as I moved up the hierarchic ladder: as an eager young search professional in the Retail Sector I came to realize the importance of efficient hiring & onboarding processes and skills. As I moved on in various leadership roles, one of them in the Federal Government, I often was challenged with matching people their competencies in critical roles effectively. Over these years, I gained a lot of experience in Talent Development and Competency Management. At that time, Compliance became an important concern in many organizations, and I decided to obtain a Master’s Degree in Labor Law. Once graduated, I started applying these new HR Legal competencies in my assignments as HR Consultant, mainly in the Energy sector, where I mainly focused on HR Transformations and HR Policy design work. To really specialize in the HR Legal side of business, for projects around restructuring, employee relations, wellbeing, etc. ..., I joined a well-known international legal firm as a senior legal consultant for a couple of years. Today I am fully dedicated in managing my own HR consultancy firm, offering specialized services in Talent Management besides running the HRM Toolshop. I started my career in the Oil & Gas Industry within the Learning & Development area, and then moved into a senior HR consultancy role at a BIG 5 Consultancy Firm where I became trained in Organization Design, Change Management and HR Transformation through theory and practice. Interesting times, lots of international traveling, but I felt that I needed to get exposed to the down-to- earth, operational side of HR! I took up several international HR Director roles in Europe and the Middle East, in various industries: working within different cultures, and how to apply HR practices across locations became my key lessons learnt those years. Summarizing all the things I saw and experienced during my career up until now would be as follows: “Running a Successful Business is Being very Smart about how you manage your People and Starts with Genuine Respect”. Any successful HR action will derive from this principle. Tania acquired 20 years of experience through managing international HR Legal Projects and Talent & Development Programs across industries. Anne gained 20 years of experience in guiding businesses through change, leadership development and strategic HR planning programs internationally.
