An intro to onboarding

Onboarding is the process of integrating new hires into a company. The word itself originated in the 1970s and gained popularity only within the past decade amongst businesses. It began when companies started recognizing the importance of preliminary training for new hires. Orientation and onboarding has changed tremendously over the years, and the steps to a successful onboarding plan are adaptable depending on the position. Most commonly, onboarding has four phases: 

  1. Pre-Boarding
  2. Welcoming
  3. Role-Specific Training
  4. Easing the Transition into a New Role

Poor onboarding can result in high turnover and the time spent on recruiting workers goes in vain. To combat this, it is important to know how to implement a great onboarding and orientation experience!
