Strategies for Successful Employee Onboarding: An Introduction

Overview/Description
What is employee onboarding and how does it differ from orientation? How can investment of time and money into such a program improve your organization? This course introduces the concept of employee onboarding and demonstrates that it’s a wise investment if properly executed. Onboarding programs rebuke the old adage that it is HR who deals with new hires. On the contrary, it’s managers who should be deeply involved for the program to be successful. This course provides managers with an insight into their unique role and outlines the benefits they reap from properly onboarding new hires. The course illustrates the key elements of an effective onboarding program, and explains how onboarding is different from traditional orientation. Rather than being an event, onboarding becomes an ongoing process that can last upwards of a year. During this time, employees have a greater chance of becoming acculturated with the organization, and will become more productive in a quicker period of time than with orientation alone. Furthermore, a successful onboarding program can greatly decrease employee turnover, as new employees feel engaged and motivated in their new roles.

Strategies for Successful Employee Onboarding: Getting Started

Overview/Description

Rolling out an onboarding strategy can help your organization create more engaged new employees and help them embrace your company culture. This, in turn, helps reduce turnover rates and can have a positive impact on your bottom line. But where should you start with your onboarding program? If you think the process seems overwhelming, you’re not alone. This course introduces actions you can take before the new hire arrives. It then considers the activities that should take place in the ensuing days, weeks, and months. It is the manager – not HR – who’s responsible for the onboarding program and who can make or break the process. To that end, the course provides tips for how the manager can best embrace the process and be aware of the challenges it involves. The buddy system, a valuable part of the onboarding program, is explained in detail.
