New ways of working have demanded more creative methods of sourcing talent within a tight labour market, with larger time and financial investments put into the selection process. The implementation of a robust onboarding programme is vital to rapidly integrate new starters into the culture, environment, business processes and organisation structure to repay these investments.
Employee onboarding forms a critical stage in the employee lifecycle, from attraction, recruitment and onboarding, through to development and performance management. All stages are necessary if organisations are to engage and retain a high-performing workforce, who are content and feel valued. A workplace must nurture knowledge and skills, and the cross-pollination of ideas, all of which have a positive impact on the bottom line.
Businesses and Learning and Development teams face the challenge of onboarding a hybrid workforce, where cohorts of new starters may be a thing of the past and new recruits need support on demand. This is why many are turning to digital onboarding solutions or a blended approach, where new talent can rapidly assimilate what they need to know, at a time and depth that suits them. Learner-centred programmes address this change, and help develop an agile workforce, who are able to adapt to the rapidly changing business environment in which they operate.
