Onboarding or “on-boarding” is a the process of helping newly hired employees become productive. Onboarding can be defined as the process of acquiring, accommodating, assimilating and accelerating new users into a system, culture or methodology. It’s about getting up to speed faster. Armed with insight for a candidate’s pre-employment assessment and the DNA of the job, we’re able to predict potential pitfalls and conflicts and thereby help prevent them.
Onboarding is a natural progression from Job Benchmarking as the same insight can assist the new hire with an enhanced awareness of how their habits, style, inclinations and motivators mesh with their co-workers.
Managers of the new hire are armed with do’s and don’t for communicating as well as a guide for managing their new subordinate.
