Onboarding and
Employee Service Recognition

Onboarding - Creating a Seamless Integration

onboarding-welcome-employeeONBOARDING -  is your organization’s formal strategy to seamlessly integrate new employees into the company culture.
A well-crafted onboarding process is essential, as it equips new hires with the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors to become effective contributors. This process not only removes the uncertainty of a new job and work environment but also helps new employees feel welcomed, valued, and prepared for their roles.


The VALUE of a well-defined On-boarding process

A thoughtful onboarding process offers numerous benefits:
  • Quick Integration: It accelerates the transition of new hires into productive team members.
  • Cultural Assimilation: It fosters a sense of belonging and instills company values from the start.
  • Employee Retention: By making new hires feel appreciated and connected, it significantly enhances employee retention.


Optimal Duration of the On-Boarding Process

welcome-aboard-thumb-200.jpgResearch suggests that the ideal onboarding period spans about three months. A shorter duration might not sufficiently impact the employee’s long-term success within the company.

A properly timed onboarding process is crucial for nurturing early relationships between new hires, management, and seasoned employees.
