Effective Onboarding for Smooth Transitions

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

How an employee perceives his or her experience from the time they are hired to getting through their first couple of weeks can have a real impact on their satisfaction and retention. Does your company welcome new employees with a well-rounded and thoughtful onboarding program? It only makes sense to ensure that once you have selected a new hire that you provide them with an effective way to make them as productive as possible as quickly as possible. There are a number of strategies that an effective onboarding program should include.

Join us at this conference to learn how your organization can become masterful at this critical activity.

Conference Webcast Schedule
Deanna Ferrante, Senior Solution Manager - HR (Perceptive Software)

The faster and more effectively you can process new employees’ HR paperwork, the higher their satisfaction and the faster they can start contributing. Learn how your HR staff can use enterprise content management (ECM) technology to:
  • Efficiently manage paper, electronic, e-mail and fax documents received throughout the onboarding process
  • Decrease time spent on processing onboarding documents in HR, payroll, IT and other departments throughout your organization
  • Increase new employee productivity by securing equipment and granting access in hours, not days or week
  • Improve compliance around I-9 and other time-sensitive documents with tracking, dashboards and notifications

Patricia Romeo, D Street Leader(No Company Selected)

Feedback during exit interviews – an often under-rated formality - should be a valued resource when it comes to making onboarding and organizational improvements. Deloitte - an international audit, financial advisory, tax, and consulting firm - heard loud and clear from departing employees that they were having a tough time connecting with others and left having never felt like part of a team. This ‘disconnect’ challenge for Deloitte was also amplified by a globally distributed workforce.

The Talent Strategy team knew they needed to improve their employee orientation and onboarding processes. Their goals were to improve employee time to proficiency and retention for new employees – leaving them feeling welcomed, valued, and prepared. Deloitte used social computing – SharePoint and NewsGator Social Sites – to address each of these concerns while making the culture and organization more transparent. It’s simple – now individuals with common interests, expertise, and backgrounds can find each other seamlessly and strike up relationships.

With social computing, new and existing Deloitte employees are able to:

  • Locate experts via detailed social profiles,
  • Make informed decisions quickly,
  • Find and share valuable information, and
  • Collaborate, communicate, and innovate on a daily basis.

  • Kris Oliveri Is this really a full day webinar?
  • Diane Horton Hi Kris, online events include several components including trade show type booths, resource center, networking lounge, and webcasts. Webcasts are scheduled during the event hours and are typically at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm ET. The online event hall is open all day from 9am to 5pm ET so attendees can visit each of the areas when it is convenient to them and also choose to watch one or several live webcasts. I hope that clarifies.
