The employee life cycle begins with job benchmarking, which builds the foundation for excellent performance. Then, once a hiring decision is made, employees benefit most when organizations provide in-depth training through a comprehensive onboarding process.
Successful onboarding yields increased job satisfaction, superior job performance, greater organizational commitment, and reduction in stress levels. The onboarding process should not be limited to just one day’s worth of learning, team building, and engagement. Instead, it must carry through the first several months of the employee’s transition into the organization to ensure optimal workplace readiness and buy-in from all parties.
