Employee Onboarding

Employee Onboarding is an Essential HR Best Practice

Nobody hires an employee to see them fail, but, often without realising, many companies do just that. It’s essential to have a sound onboarding process to set employees up for success.

Why is onboarding so critical for new employees?

One of the primary reasons is that onboarding sets expectations and accountability for both employer and employee. New employee onboarding allows new hires to hit the ground running knowing how their performance will be measured, understanding key systems and processes, and with an awareness of the social aspects of their new role.

When onboarding is done well, new employees will get up to speed faster and can contribute more to the success of your organisation. This involves consistently implementing written onboarding plans and clearly communicating the company’s goals, expectations, procedures, and policies.

A systematic approach to employee onboarding

With an employee typically given 90 days to prove his or her worth to the company, a clear and practiced onboarding process outlining the performance measures, training methods, and featuring clear milestones with review dates, are essential for your new hire to excel.
This process starts before the their first day on the job, beginning with the development of detailed position descriptions to find the correct candidate, and ensuring the employment contract meets award and Fair Work Act obligations.
