Elements of a Well-Rounded New Hire Training & Onboarding Program
Starting a new job can be tough. You’re walking into new territory. The culture is different, the processes are different and you have to adjust to all of it. However, an effective onboarding process is critical to the success of new employees. So, what are the perfect elements of a well-rounded, effective onboarding with new hires?
You don’t have to have a party for a new person’s first day. However, make sure they are introduced to everyone. Don’t just let the new person know your name. Let them know what you do, what department you work in, and how you can be a resource to them as they are adjusting to the new job. Everyone has been new to the job at some point so all can relate to that overwhelming feeling. It’s important that new employees know they have allies.
Every company is different. Some expect you to be at your desk from 9-5. Others don’t care as long as your work gets done. Some even allow and encourage working remotely once or twice a week. Each culture is different and it’s important that new members know what the expectation is so they don’t unknowingly break the rules.
Leadership training is a vital to the onboarding process. New employees want to succeed in their role and grow their career. They may know where they want to be in five years, but do they know how to get there with your company? Do they know what would be expected from them to take on leadership roles? It’s important to inform and encourage new hires to reach the goals they set for themselves. A great leader can help a company thrive.
