It is estimated that 50% of all senior outside hires fail within 18 months on the job. Talya Bauer outlines the critical role onboarding can play in making career transitions much smoother.

    Very well written Article. Effective onboarding has a measurable effect on a Company's growth and hence improving the Employee satisfaction. Today only I saw a clip explaining some practices that can be followed while Onboarding a New Employee and out of which the point on “First Impression” I liked the most. Would like to share it with you all. Have a look on : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0e47Ywn6O8

    Effective Article! Investing in an onboarding process will help reduce turnover and increase new hire effectiveness. An onboarding program isn't just or more than a routine checklist; it should be a comprehensive process that makes the new employee as well as the company confident they made the right choice and confident they can succeed in their new job

    Great article with some extremely helpful advice! To expand upon your point regarding utilizing technology during the onboarding process, we use a document management system called Docudavit. We are able to send and have new employees sign all paperwork that is then stored digitally. In the past we used paper which was expensive and just not as efficient.

    I feel technology has lots to do in terms of making employee on-boarding effective. Automation of routine processes makes life easy for both new hires and for HR people. Deployment of a system where both employer and new hires can understand expectations, scope of two way communication, measuring performance metrics, and extnding clear understanding of goals to the new employees improves employee onboarding process to a great extent.
    **On Boarding Process can be Improved by following steps
    *Keep yourselves in new hires shoes
    *Start Process before new hire joins the office
    *Eliminate paper Work
    *Arrange a mentor
    *Personalize experience
    *Make their day special
    *Ask for feedback
