Is your business struggling to create the finest new hire onboarding experience? If so, your organization is not alone! There are thousands of organizations that struggle to make their new hires feel valued and respected during the first year of their joining. This results in a decrease in long-term employee retention. Hence, having an onboarding process that is streamlined is extremely crucial.
Instead of randomly choosing and creating steps to onboard, here are five onboarding checklists that you should follow for a positive experience.
Remote onboarding checklist
Due to the pandemic, remote working has become the norm for several organizations. If not exclusively remote, several employers are trying to implement a mix of remote and in-office working methods.
So, it is safe to say that remote working is not going anywhere. Therefore, you need to create a remote onboarding checklist that includes all your tasks for an efficient virtual onboarding of new hires.
When you have new hires joining the organization, there is a lot of paperwork and documentation to be completed. And even if you miss one document, it can cause issues in the future. Hence, prepare a complete document checklist that needs to be completed for effective onboarding.
You can also use automated software for creating the document checklist and help the new hires fill it remotely even before they start their first day.
Effective new employee onboarding will include providing new hires with quality onboarding content that gives them an in-depth look into your organization’s processes. Don’t overload your new hires with too much information but share bite sized information throughout the span of the onboarding process.
Hence, a checklist will help you create the right amount and quality of content along with the right timeline.
Onboarding Checklist for Managers
Apart from new hires, you need to create an onboarding checklist for managers initiating their involvement in the process.
When the onboardee’s immediate manager gets involved in the onboarding process, the onboarding is more efficient and effective. Also, a growing trend is to assign a buddy program for the new hires too. Since onboarding is a team sport, it always helps to increase collaboration involving team members.
As much as onboarding is important, offboarding is important too. The employee experience while leaving the organization can have a major impact on future recruitment processes. A bad review from an ex-employee will affect future candidates from applying to your organization.
Also, after years of investing and creating a good employee experience, you don’t want the final moment to be ruined for the employee. Hence, creating an offboarding checklist is crucial too.
