Like first impressions, an onboarding experience is lasting – and companies have a single shot to make it right. A bad experience can be damaging to a company’s reputation as an attractive employer.
Bersin and Associates defines onboarding as, “… the process of hiring, orienting and immersing new employees into their roles and into the organization’s culture.”
To us, a strong onboarding program is simply:
- a genuine WELCOME
- a well thought-out and structured approach to acculturate a new hire
- designed to accelerate a new employee’s time to create impact and succeed
With reference to these tenets, Aboitiz Group Human Resources and HR partners from SBUs endeavored to revisit and redesign our New Employee Onboarding Process.
