Onboarding: the fast track to staff productivity?

Onboarding: the fast track to staff productivity? | On Boarding Ideas | Scoop.it

The pressure on HR teams and line managers during busy and difficult times can mean elements of the onboarding process are inadvertently overlooked or forgotten.
But it can be a mistake to cut the time and money spent engaging with new recruits before and after they start.

The Flipped Classroom Model: A Full Picture

The Flipped Classroom Model: A Full Picture | On Boarding Ideas | Scoop.it

Can we use some of the ideas of flipped classroom to create an on boarding experience? Here is a definition of the flipped classroom:

 

"Flip your instruction so that students watch and listen to your lectures… for homework, and then use your precious class-time for what previously, often, was done in homework: tackling difficult problems, working in groups, researching, collaborating, crafting and creating. Classrooms become laboratories or studios, and yet content delivery is preserved.

Workplace Culture Leaders Humanize the Onboarding Process

Workplace Culture Leaders Humanize the Onboarding Process | On Boarding Ideas | Scoop.it

Is formal employee orientation a thing of the past in this everything-social and digital world?

 

A simple answer is it depends on the new hire and the organization and workplace culture and of course, the leadership. Nevertheless, I do worry about companies relying too much on social media methods and too little on formalized, meeting or classroom-based employee onboarding programs. At some point, if Leaders and HR pushes all its systems and programs into the social column, we will risk losing the human touch – and the invaluable opportunity for a one-to-one transfer of knowledge and workplace culture. I see this as a fine balacing act for the C-Suite and the rest of your team players in this digital age.

WLS's curator insight, April 7, 2014 10:00 AM

Technology is great!  It enhances our lives.  It makes information accessible at the speed of light.  It's cool and fun.  It's our new way of life.  It keeps us isolated in our own worlds with the intermittent text message, or IM, or video call from time to time.  We're too busy for anything else, right?  

 

Well how does your new hire feel about that?  New hires say they still value the face-to-face interaction with a real person.  They like being with a group of other newbies who are just as clueless as they are, learning the basic rules of survival in  their new "world".  No one wants to feel like a fish out of water.  So think carefully before converting your new employee orientation programs to virtual, technology driven events.
