All You Need to Know About The New Hire Onboarding Process

What is onboarding?

Onboarding is an HR term referring to introducing a newly hired employee onto your team or organization. The process consists of helping employees understand their new position and any job requirements or rules that come along with working for that company. Onboarding is important because it helps the new hire seamlessly integrate with the rest of the team and be set up for success. Onboarding can last anywhere from a few weeks to a year, but ideally, the process usually lasts a few months.

Where does onboarding begin?

It starts with providing information about policies and benefits on the first day and making sure all proper documentation is filled out and taken care of. With Workforce PayHub you can do the onboarding process right from your phone or tablet; you don’t have to fill out a stack of documents with pen and paper. Now more than ever it’s important to have an electronic filing cabinet so you can quickly access documents and work to get your new hire up and running as quickly as possible. 

After the paperwork and rules are explained to a new hire it’s time to have them jump right in. Typically, the next step in the onboarding process is to facilitate training. Even the most experienced employee needs a training period to help them understand how everything works at their new organization. Through this process, a new employee gets up to speed on daily tasks and operations.

After the beginning, more tedious tasks are complete, it’s time to get your new hire inducted into the organizational culture of the company. Help them form social connections and establish communication with team members and managers. Having this step helps the new employee feel included and a part of the team.

Evolving your Onboarding Process

Onboarding doesn’t stop after a new hire’s first day or first week. The time of the process is different for each organization, however, extending certain processes up to a year can ensure employees have the resources they need to get to know the company, feel confident about training processes, and feel comfortable having the tools to do their job.
