Employee onboarding is a critical part of the employee lifecycle as it’s the employee’s first on-the-job experience with a new company. It’s the process a new hire goes through when joining and adjusting to their new role, specifically by learning their essential duties as it relates to organizational goals. The key is to focus on these two pieces: There are two main components in all successful onboarding programs. On one hand, you have the acculturation of the new employee – the human side of onboarding. The other component is the paperwork and compliance side of onboarding. Both are vital, and both require the right tools to maximize efficiency.
