ONBOARDING ISN’T JUST FOR A DAY
Welcoming new resources is one of the most influential progresses on a future work relationship. The real difference between companies doesn’t lie solely in the quality of the products, but in resources and business climate on various levels.
That’s why when a new employee joins, it’s crucial that the relationship between both subjects starts in the best way possible. The relationship is analysed in terms of exchange and enrichment, from the moment that the objective is that of mutual collaboration and satisfaction on both sides. Starting a new working experience in an unknown environment can cause anxiety and uncertainty among the new employee that, if foreseeable in the first weeks, can later become a bigger problem if these symptoms persist. Unmotivated and confused employees will likely leave the company after a short period of time to look for another position, while those who decide to stay unmotivated, will likely never work to their full potential.
PLAY TO JOIN THE TEAM
As in every relationship, those first moments spent together are the ones that require more care. The company, from day one, must create the perfect conditions to boost the new colleagues’ skills and motivation, creating a professional relationship that brings satisfaction, even from a personal point of view. A mutual path of awareness also takes addition and orientation time into account, accompanying the newly employed to discover new territory and a new corporate culture.
A GUIDED PATH
According to the statistics, it takes at least 8 months before the new employee reaches full productivity, but it’s the first 90 days that determine lower or greater job satisfaction. It’s during these first 3 months that the most common questions relating to the role, abilities and personal compatibility with corporate identity arise.
This first entrance phase must be considered a process of integration where expressing one’s potential in this context must be a possibility. Formal and informal meetings, involvement in extra-work activities, coaching, welcome kits full of essential information are all factors that help a new colleague to settle in and feel part of a team, increasing their potential when combined with an easily accessible online strategy.
INTERACTION MADE FAST AND SIMPLE
Adopting digital platforms helps welcome, guide and train new employees, making sure that they are fully operative and introduced to the culture and corporate identity in the shortest possible time. The less time it takes to obtain the information necessary to perform tasks, the greater the immediate value perceived by the company towards the new resource is; without neglecting the importance and effectiveness of the relational exchange with other members. Direct involvement of the most recent employee can be made through mobile applications, virtual tours of the workspace and personalised learning paths.
