Steps to Onboarding Success
67% of organizations find it extremely difficult to identify, develop, engage and retain their talented people. Organizations spend thousands on carefully seeking out and identifying top talent but do nothing to continue developing that same important talent resource. – Lane Winward.
It’s interesting to consider that the majority of employees who leave a job after a twelve-month period had already made their decision to leave within the first month. That’s why a more focused onboarding regime or new hire training is so important, encouraging future leadership and talent development potential and the kind of performance levels that will satisfy employer and employee alike.
Here’s how you create future leaders through successful onboarding processes…
Start Onboarding before Day 1!
After you’ve sent off the letter of offer – but before the new staff member starts – your new hires are invariably looking to learn as much as possible about the business in advance, believing that this will allow them to impress from minute one. You should acknowledge this need by providing an orientation portal where they can get up to speed on your processes and practices – along with cultural information about the company. This exercise can also allay any sense of fear about ‘turning up cold’ on their first day.

How Can We Help You?
We provide a wide range of solutions and sales training courses for learning and talent development. These have helped many of our client companies successfully onboard their new hires. We can help you in a number of ways, including:
Custom eLearning that has been specifically developed for your company’s new hire training program. Our training programs aim to develop your talent from Day 1, making relevant and easily absorbed training available whenever and wherever you need it, either on desktop or mobile devices.
Classroom training or ILT training will allow your newly hired talent to learn on a one-to-one basis, with the opportunity to raise any issues with an instructor and to seek further information on the spot, if needed.
Blended programs are normally based on the very particular training needs of your newly hired talent, looking to give learners a more varied and richer learning experience.
Training consultancy is a new service from Interactive Services that allows the client to develop the optimal blend of training – drawing on instructional designers, in-house training, and eLearning consultants, along with any other external learning sources you may need.
