Employee Onboarding

What is Employee Onboarding?

Bringing new hires into an organization. Sometimes used synonymously with new hire orientation, employee onboarding includes filling out forms and on-the-job training but also socialization and culture training so new hires can be effective, contributing team members. Effective onboarding can extend weeks or months beyond a new hire’s first day.
