Onboarding Employees

Early Service Recognition
for new hires

early-service-recognition-250ON-BOARDING -  is a formal strategy and a defined process to quickly integrate a new employee into your organization and culture. It should be designed to help employees acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors to become effective and productive members.

The VALUE of a well-defined new-hire On-boarding process:

  • Removes the mystery of the new job, work space, and their fellow employees
  • Helps new hires feel welcomed, valued, and prepared for their new role
  • Provides a quick and effective way to promote positive attitudes and work habits
  • Increases engagement by helping new hires get up to speed more quickly
  • Reduces the time it takes to become contributing members of your organization
  • Helps instill a sense of belonging
  • Increases employee retention

How long should the On-Boarding Process take?

Studies have shown that the ideal length for this activity is about three months. Less than that is just not sufficient to make a significant impact on the employee. Too short, or no on-boarding process at all, can negatively affect a new hire, and increases the chances they will not stay very long. 

On-boarding is the best time and best way to initiate and cultivate relationships with your new talent, establishing a bond between management and more seasoned employees at this crucial stage in their employment.

Consider the use of low-cost awards at the completion of the on-boarding process. These awards are part of the Early Service Recognition category, within your Service Recognition Program.
