Onboarding new employees basically means having an integration programme. In addition, this novel term helps remind us of the importance of the process.
The more progressive organisations consider taking on new employees as part of their talent management programme. Even if you don’t think of your employees in terms of talent life cycles, it is worth paying attention to onboarding. Studies show that onboarding impacts a company’s effectiveness and profits, and it also improves the performance of a new employee by 10%. In addition, a well-functioning integration programme increases work satisfaction and dedication, and it also decreases stress and personnel turnover.
Considering the global pace of technological innovation, it is surprising how some sectors manage to stubbornly resist the overwhelming force of change. Human resources and recruitment services is probably one of the biggest areas worldwide which mostly lags approximately 20 years in terms of the utilisation of technology. The last real innovation seems to have been the digitalization of CV-s, and the introduction of central CV databases.
A number of smart solutions have been developed for making human resource services and recruitment more efficient, but these have found negligible use and market share compared to traditional methods. Even professional recruiting agencies still rely on such solutions as a pile of hardcopy CV-s on someone’s desk, an Excel spreadsheet for managing the recruitment process, and the „diagonal reading“ of CV-s to assess the candidates’ suitability. Not to mention manually sending hundreds of identical e-mails to candidates or the questionable regulatory compliance of the way candidates’ personal information is processed.
