Reinvent Your Onboarding Process

Posted By Editor, Laurie, Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Contributed by Holly Burkett, Ph.D., SPHR, HR West 2018 Speaker*

At Cirrus Logic, ranked eighth on the 2015 Great Place to Work® Best Medium Workplaces list, new hires are immersed in a culture camp called the School of Cirrus Rocks. At the camp, participants first learn about company values through storytelling. They then break into groups and create a story in the form of a song about working at the company. Later, they meet at a local bar with local musicians to perform their songs and get cheered on by their teams and supervisors.

While many organizations prefer more structure to onboarding programs, others follow a sink-or-swim approach, where new employees must figure out on their own what the team and the organization expects from them. Whatever form onboarding takes in your workplace, it is one of the most important contributions a hiring manager or HR professional can make to talent retention, employee engagement and organizational performance.

What Is Onboarding and Why Does It Matter?  Continue reading on the HR West Blog.

By David Kovacovich, HR West 2018 Speaker

The Ever-Evolving Employee Experience By David KovacovichI’ve been in the Human Capital Management industry for 10 years. We started with logoed lamps for milestone achievements. The concept of Employee Recognition made the process of rewarding behavior change more immediate and systematic. Employee Engagement introduced employee learning, performance management, live events and leadership development into a broadened view of employee development.
