How much thought have you given to on-boarding? Does it make new hires feel welcome and excited about their decision to work for you? And as a result, does it give new employees confidence in meeting your expectations? Do you have a plan for training your new hires, without overwhelming them with all there is to learn? Is your on-boarding an on-going process, rather than an event?
On-boarding requires a lot of work on behalf of HR professionals as well as the managers who share in this responsibility. It's about indoctrination into your organization's culture. It means encouraging new employees to apply their strengths to their new position. It's also about meeting and staying connected with colleagues. One of your most important goals is to show new employees "how things are done around here" and to instill in them a sense of pride in their new affiliation. Give them the tools, information, and introductions they will need to excel and everyone will be successful and happy!
Traditional methods of new-hire orientation/on-boarding have weaknesses. Your job as a leader is to overcome those weaknesses. This is your chance to make a great first impression with new hires. Investing in employee on-boarding ensures that you are prepared for, and are committed to supporting newcomers in their roles. In turn, employee success leads to satisfaction and retention, which allows leaders as well as their employees to continue to meet their goals. On-boarding does not occur only at large companies, it is also beneficial for small and midsize businesses. It ensures that the new joiners or employees become satisfied and productive members in the team.
