One of the most important exercises for an organization concerning its new hires is the onboarding process. Interviews, induction, and training go into the process, but are only a part of it. The much higher goal of an onboarding process is acclimatizing the employee to the organization’s culture. This makes the task of creating a good impression in the minds of the new hire about the organizational culture something of a matter of imperative to organizations. If the onboarding achieves this, it can be said to have achieved its primary objective.

Every action and step that will imbibe a sense of association and affinity in the new hire about the organization should be undertaken. This is what will contribute to making the onboarding a success. It should give the new hires the confidence that they have made the right decision in joining the organization and motivate them to give their best to it.

So, HR should develop and implement a proper onboarding process that sits in line with the expectations the new hires have. The ways by which to do this will be the learning a webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of human resources, will be imparting.

Industrial/Organizational Psychologist and thought leader, Lynn Ware, will be the expert at this webinar, which is being organized on December 4.

Onboarding is NOT Orientation – How to Improve the New Employee Experience

Onboarding-1024x683

Onboarding is perhaps the single most important factor in facilitating employee loyalty with the organization. Why? Because this is the phase that settles the employees into the organization and creates the conditions that makes them stay in it. It is during this tenure that the employee develops a sense of loyalty about the organization. The onboarding process is what sets this in motion.

When onboarding goes wrong, it sets a negative mindset in the new employee against the organization. It is no wonder that wrongly carried out onboarding results in alarming turnover rates: half the hourly wage employees quit within four months and half of the regular wage employee quit in one-and-a-half years!

This powerful statistic perhaps best underlines the importance of having a thoroughly designed and executed onboarding plan. How do organizations carry out such an onboarding process? This is the valuable learning a webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for the human resources areas, will impart.

Being organized on October 8, this webinar will bring the co-founder of Omega HR Solutions, Inc., Michael Haberman, as the expert. Please visit TrainHR to enroll for this webinar.

Contrary to popular belief, onboarding is not the same as orientation. While orientation is a onetime exercise, onboarding is a longer one. This is the process that ensures that the new employee feels a sense of being wanted in the organization. This can come about only when the employee feels that she is a part of the organization. This course will show how to nurture these positive feelings in the new employee.

Getting employees that fit into the organizational culture and mindset is very vital for organizations. Unless they are both on the same page, there is bound to be some element of disharmony, which reflects on the organization’s functioning. Lowered productivity, employee turnover, which leads to loss of reputation, and the unpleasant exchanges between the management and the unassimilated employee, are some of the results of an onboarding process that goes awry.

At this webinar, Michael will explain how to bring about success with loyal and committed employees, who are shaped during the onboarding process. He will cover the following areas at this webinar, which is aimed at the benefit of HR Managers, Office Managers, Supervisors, Managers and Company Owners:

  • The Cost of Turnover
  • The Steps Involved in Onboarding
  • Before the Hire
  • During the Hire
  • The First Day
  • The First Week
  • The Ongoing Process
  • What Potential Activities are Included?

What’s New in Onboarding

Interviews are only a part of the onboarding process. The onboarding process includes the interview, as well as the induction process, the training, plus much else. In other words, it is the means by which the new hires are acclimatized into the organizational culture. So, it is very crucial to create a positive impression into the new hires about the organization. This is the primary objective of an onboarding process.

This is also the reason for which the onboarding process should not be carried out clumsily. If done this way, the gains of the interview process would go on to get neutralized and undone. This is something that organizations need to avoid if they have to get the new talent to take off and grow into the organization.

When done right, a proper onboarding process can fill the organization’s bottom line to the tune of millions of dollars. However, getting it wrong can wreck the bottom line. This is why HR should develop and implement a well thought-out process that matches employee expectations.
