Onboarding: A Primer to Effective Onboarding

  1. 1. ONBOARDING: SET GOALS, ESTABLISH EXPECTATIONS AND TURN GREAT CANDIDATES INTO EVEN BETTER EMPLOYEES Sabrina Baker, PHR
  2. 2. ORIENTATION AND ONBOARDING ARE NOT THE SAME THING
  3. 3. ORIENTATION NEW HIRE PAPERWORK, POLICIES AND PROCEDURES, HERE’S YOUR CUBICLE
  4. 4. ONBOARDING ENSURES THAT…. Expectations are set….
  5. 5. ONBOARDING ENSURES THAT…. Goals are aligned….
  6. 6. ONBOARDING ENSURES THAT…. High performance is achieved….
  7. 7. THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH A SYSTEMATIC PROCESS THAT BEGINS IN THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS AND ENDS MONTHS AFTER A HIRE IS MADE
  8. 8. ONBOARDING ACTIVITES TAKE PLACE IN FOUR DISTINCT TIMEFRAMES Recruitment Process Orientation First 90 Days Growth 91-180 Days Development 181 Days+
  9. 9. “ Every single candidate begins the onboarding process with your company, but not all will make it through the entire process.
  10. 10. The recruitment process serves as an introduction into life at your company. Use this time to share culture, vision, mission and general expectations. Utilize Recruitment Marketing, Careers Pages, Job Ads and Branded Social Sites to Begin the Onboarding Process.
  11. 11. THE FIRST days SHOULD FOCUS ON WELCOMING, INGRAINING CULTURE AND SETTING EXPECTATIONS
  12. 12. “ After the initial 90 days, reality starts to set in. It is during this time that most employees decide whether they are going to stick around.
  13. 13. AFTER THE INITIAL ORIENTATION, EMPLOYEES WANT AUTONOMY BUT STILL NEED ACCESS TO HELP, GUIDANCE AND SUPPORT
  14. 14. AFTER THE SIX MONTH MARK ONBOARDING ACTIVITIES SHIFT TO FOCUS MORE ON DEVELOPMENT, JOB ENLARGEMENT AND ENRICHMENT AND CONTINUED SUPPORT
  15. 15. “ Effective onboarding programs ensure all employees consistently receive the same information, support and development. Thus ensuring higher levels of success.
