Attracting and retaining talent and developing skills are at the top of every company's agenda. The time it takes to recruit new employees and the high costs involved mean that everyone who joins a company needs to get to work and be productive as soon as possible.
Open vacancies and unproductive employees lead to increased pressure on the existing workforce as they are required to bear an additional workload, which consequently leads to underperformance.
The first days in a new job are therefore crucial. New employees have to get used to a new company culture, their roles and colleagues, and will want to make a good first impression on their managers.
The modern approach to onboarding has evolved in such a way that it provides all employees with all the knowledge needed to be successful, supporting them during their development from job candidate to productive employee. In the past, there was a good chance that new hires had to wait until their first working day before they could meet new colleagues, handle paperwork and start learning. Successful organizations are now starting this process much earlier.
