You only have one chance to make a good first impression. The Onboarding Process is that one chance. All new hires are highly motivated on their first day of employment. Whether you call it Onboarding, Induction, Enculturation, or New Employee Orientation, the process used to welcome and train your new employees while capturing their excitement of a new job and reducing their new job jitters is critical to their success.
Dealing with new employee jitters and uncertainties is a high priority in orientation programs. The process of orienting new employees to their new position, their new work environment, and their new colleagues takes time, and if not done effectively, the new hire leaves and goes elsewhere. Onboarding is a strategy and a process that extends well beyond the first day on the job. It is critical to get the new hire off and running in their new environment and become acclimated to their company, position, and colleagues.
A comprehensive Onboarding process results in a higher level of engagement and the new employee reaches productivity much sooner. Poor onboarding results in higher turnover, lower productivity, and lower profitability.
Why do so many new employees become disenchanted with their job after a few months? This question is hard to answer as there could be many reasons – but one of the biggest reasons for employee disenchantment is a toxic or negative work environment. Ways to identify and eliminate negativity will also be covered in this webinar.
How much better would your workplace be if you could harness the motivation and energy of the new employee for years? The answer is obvious.
This webinar will help management and supervisory employees with new and better ways to welcome new employees and stop the destructive force that negativity causes in the workplace.
A strong onboarding process is critical to YOUR success as an HR professional as well as the success of YOUR organization. Learn the nuances of effectively bringing new employees into YOUR organization.

Effective onboarding is a critical component of the employee experience, encompassing the art of seamlessly integrating new hires into the organizational culture, whether in-person or virtually. Acknowledging that a well-executed onboarding process sets the tone for a successful professional journey, the focus is on creating a positive and informative introduction to the company's values, goals, and work environment. By mastering the art of effective onboarding, organizations can enhance employee retention, job satisfaction, and overall productivity, ultimately contributing to a positive workplace culture and long-term success.
