New Hire Onboarding

Think of the employee boarding process in three phases: preboarding, onboarding, and keepboarding. The more time you spend preboarding, the easier onboarding will be for the employee and HR staff. This is where your company culture should shine, and communications are your chance to make a great first impression.

But onboarding isn’t a “one day and done” effort. HR needs to check in with new hires regularly in the first three months, and then at least once a year after that. That’s how you keep them on board.
