Set Employees up for Success with Proper Onboarding

Introductions to a company’s policies, procedures, and other formal rules have always been a necessary first step for new employees. This was called an orientation. Today, however, that process has evolved significantly. So has its name. Onboarding takes employees further. Unlike an orientation, it is an integration process that not only provides the company with information new hires need but also ensures that they become actively involved as quickly as possible, jumpstarting their contributions to productivity.

Onboarding walks you through a model with four overlapping elements: Resources, Rules, Relationships, and Roles. Clear expectations between a manager and their direct reports (expectations going in both directions) can make the difference between a relationship that succeeds and one that fails. In fact, research shows that the managerdirect report relationship is the most important. And when it fails, turnover usually follows. It is for this reason that the program places much emphasis on roles. While this element is discussed in more detail than others, at the conclusion of this instructor-led course, you will be better able to actively translate each element of the onboarding model into specific action steps you can take in your own situation.
