HR Skills™: Onboarding


Onboarding is the process of welcoming new employees into the organization and providing them with the resources necessary to be fruitful members of the organization. This process is a calculated method that lasts anywhere from a month to a whole year. Onboarding is directly connected to many key HR functions, including workplace culture and safety, professional development and training, and employee retention. When employees have a strong onboarding experience, they are more likely to stay with their organizations longer and to feel satisfied in their roles.

In this course, you'll learn what makes an onboarding plan successful, and you'll learn how orientation, onboarding, and training come together to promote long-term success for new employees.
