Frequently Asked Questions – Onboarding
Is employee onboarding another way to refer to employee orientation?
Employee onboarding goes beyond employee orientation because it prepares the employee for a new role. Onboarding is an experience that should take place whenever an employee assumes new responsibilities in the workplace.
How will an onboarding program benefit my company?
Because onboarding programs prepare employees to execute their functions, these programs increase business results, employee engagement, and company branding which, in turn, lead to higher company profits.
About how long should an onboarding program take?
In our experience, an onboarding program should take at least three to six months depending on the employee’s role.
Who should participate in an onboarding program?
Every employee who joins a company or who assumes new responsibilities should participate in a tailored onboarding program. Managers, who also have the responsibility of onboarding their own employees, should definitely undergo the onboarding experience. Senior Managers and Executives also need to participate.
Are onboarding programs recommended only for large companies?
Companies of all sizes should have onboarding programs because each company’s culture and ways of doing business are unique. The level of complexity of these programs will vary depending on the type and size of the company. We can advise you on the best solution for your company’s needs.
