The best onboarding process is one that guarantees the best new employee experience. Successful onboarding experiences should guarantee employee retention, and improve productivity.
HR has one of the most impactful roles in any company, when operating effectively. They manage the relationship between an employee and the business. A positive relationship improves productivity, and trust in the workplace. The role of HR is critical, especially in the most challenging employment situations.
As a result, HR departments need to be operating as efficiently as possible. HR tools are a key component in the HR workday, and can help the department to manage their ever-increasing workload. The work of human resources is never finished, so it’s key to ensure they receive the support they need to aid your employees.
Employee onboarding processes need to take into account both what the new hire needs from you and what you need them to learn. Too often the focus is your offer: what you sell and what it does. But the best onboarding processes also teach about your culture, your customers, your regulatory regime, and they give the new hire the tools they need to succeed.
Onboarding is like a foundation. It gives your new hires the tools and knowledge they need to succeed in the company.
Good onboarding actually starts before day one. Advanced access to tools and an overview of the training schedule is a good pre-employment training kit.
