Employee Onboarding Training Course
Employee Onboarding is the process through which new employees gain the required skills, behaviors and knowledge to become functional members to your business. Strategies include lectures, formal meetings, printed materials, videos, or computer-based orientations to introduce new employees to your company. Research has shown that these techniques lead to positive outcomes for new employees such as better job performance, higher job satisfaction, reduction in occupational stress and better commitment. These outcomes are particularly positive to any business that want to retain a competitive advantage in an increasingly globalized and mobile workforce.
To increase the success of any onboarding program, it is vital for a business to monitor how well their new hires are adjusting to their new roles, supervisors, responsibilities, peers, and the overall business. Employee Onboarding is a crucial step of the hiring procedure. Bringing new employees on board is a major investment that will help new employees develop their knowledge, skills and value within the company. It will stop highly skilled workers from being lured to a competitor.
Employee Onboarding will lower employee turnover costs and it will produce a happier and more skilled workforce and increase productivity. The new hire phase is a critical time for the employee and company and having a structured set of procedures will make this time run smoother and produce a greater chance of success.
In this course we will define employee onboarding and look at it's purpose and benefits, as well as preparing for an onboarding program. You will be able to create expectations, engage and follow up with employees, and discover the importance of flexibility and resiliency.
