Onboarding is an integral part of

the talent.experience journey

“The concept of re-recruiting is

really quite simple. Periodically

“update” your original job offer

(the one when they started or

with their last promotion) so

that it appears new, fresh, and

exciting to a top-performing

employees. And don’t just

settle with re-recruiting once.”

(Dr. John Sullivan)

Polling question #2

What best describes your current state of

onboarding?

We have a leading practice onboarding program.

We are currently in the process of re-designing our

onboarding program.

We don’t have a consistent onboarding program.

The business case for onboarding“Transitions are periods of opportunity, a chance to start afresh and to

make needed changes in an organization. But they are also periods of

acute vulnerability, because a new hire lacks established working

relationships and a detailed understanding of their new role.“ (Michael

Watkins, author of “The First 90 Days”)

Motivate new employees: Effectively onboarding new hires can increase

an employee’s discretionary effort in excess of 20%.

Reduce new hire turnover: Upgrading an organization’s onboarding

process can lead to a reduction in new hire turnover from 70% to 16%.

Improve new hire performance: Effective onboarding programs can

improve employee performance by up to 11.3%. (Source: CLC)

Top 5 challenges of onboarding

10 @Nicole_Dessain

talentimperative.com

1. Many programs attempt to include every possible task/procedure

resulting in participant information-overload.

2. Stakeholder involvement in the onboarding process is very often

not sufficient or valued. In many companies, there is confusion

over who “owns” onboarding.

3. Inconsistent commitment to following through with the entire

onboarding roadmap

4. Inability to update and maintain the new hire curricula to reflect

current business realities on a timely basis (e.g. system updates,

compliance requirements, etc.)

5. Insufficient blend of learning approaches (ILT, self-paced, OJT,

computer or web-based) due to cost or resource constraints

experienced the most?

Onboarding program design criteria

Create a “core” new hire experience Company & business overview, culture induction

Allow for business unit/geography specific customization Business unit strategy, local org charts, local facilities and resources

Ensure effective & efficient delivery of new hire

experience Automation of key paperwork, pacing of learning modules through LMS, manager

checklists in MSS, sharable content repository for coordinators, role clarity

Determine scope and differentiation Remote/virtual employees? Contract/contingent/temp workforce? First time

manager transition? Expats? “White glove” for external executive new hires?

Identify measures of success Quality of hire (incl. retention, performance, satisfaction/engagement)

• India-based BPO providing phone and chat support for global customers

• Harvard Business School field experiment to reduce 70% new hire turnover

• Control group of new hires receiving “individualized” experience (incl.

senior leader how by working at company they can express themselves,

introduction to group, personalized sweatshirt)

• Result: People who did the organization-focused onboarding process were

about twice as likely to quit than people who reflected on their strengths

• Silicon Valley-based software company with a hiring rate of 50 – 250

people/week

• Predictive analytics to determine what correlates with high performance

• Six week coding boot camp working on real-life projects

• At completion of boot camp, new employees can choose where they want

to work – the rationale being that it is hard to determine which job to apply

for before you know the company

How do I get started with (re)designing an

onboarding program?

Create a compelling business/value case

Gain buy-in about business sponsorship, scope, roll out

phases, pilots

Design metrics that align to business outcomes

Conduct target audience surveys/interviews/focus groups

to identify gaps in current program

Identify key stakeholders and involve them throughout the

process

Ensure role clarity and accountability for ongoing program

sustainability

Create forum for best practice sharing, especially in multi-

site/multi-geography environment20 @Nicole_Dessain
