Learning Objectives:

1. Why onboarding is important?
2. What key learnings must happening for an onboarding process to be successful
3. How to create an effective onboarding program

Session Description:

I will provide the tools you need to create an effective onboarding process in your company. New employee onboarding is the process of getting new hires adjusted to the social and performance aspects of their new jobs quickly and smoothly. It is the process through which new hires learn the attitudes, knowledge, skills, and behaviors required to function effectively within an organization. The bottom line is that organizations can make new hires feel welcomed into the organization and prepared for their new jobs, the faster they will be able to successfully contribute to the organization’s mission. While all employees experience some type of onboarding, the formality and comprehensiveness of onboarding programs vary widely across organizations. For example, benchmarking studies show that organizations considered “best in class” for onboarding have formal onboarding programs.
