During the recruitment process, one of the most important steps is the onboarding process. However, the reality is that most organizations don’t give it the attention it deserves. In HR recruitment, employee onboarding should not be a formality but rather a strategy and a process that makes new employee onboarding an enjoyable experience for the new employee. Onboarding can improve productivity, decrease employee time to adapt and boost employee satisfaction, while at the same time reducing employee attrition. Here are a few ways to make your employees’ onboarding experience memorable.
Process To Make Onboarding a Cakewalk For Your Employees
- Don’t rush the onboarding process.
We typically see HR recruiters complete the onboarding process in a very short period. You cannot afford to run the onboarding process that lasts only for one day when you are thinking about hiring an employee for 10 years.
- Make everything clear and transparent to the employee
Recruited employees should get explanations about the company’s policies and rules in a way that is simple and easy to understand. It will ensure that there is no confusion in their minds. Onboarding should be positive and welcoming.
- Help them cope with culture shock
An employee who cannot adapt to a new work environment and its culture will quickly become frustrated and dissatisfied with the job. Onboarding should assist employees in adjusting to a new cultural environment and make the transition to a new job as seamless as possible.
- Use modern HR onboarding software
You do not have to worry about new-age HR onboarding software that automates the entire process if your organization hires a very small number of employees each month.
In contrast, if you are considering hiring a large number of employees, or if your offices are located in different regions of the country or even the world, then you will want to make sure that you are using the latest HR onboarding software for your recruitment processes.
- Positively welcome your employees:
Welcome your new employee with an open heart and do everything you can to create a lasting first impression that establishes the connection of your organization with your employees right away.
- Follow up regularly:
It is a fact that the first three months on the job are critical. If an employee does not feel comfortable at work, they may move out, so as a manager, it is extremely important to follow up regularly with your newly hired employees
- Do not hesitate to take the feedback
When organizations do not take the time to listen to the new employee’s feedback about the overall onboarding process, they make a mistake. Listening to feedback from the new employee will help you improve the onboarding process in the future.
