In this blog, you will learn some important tips to design a successful onboarding training program. Now, imagine a scenario!
It’s Tom’s first day at ABC company. A fresher from campus, he has many aspirations and was choosy about the organization he has just joined.
But, much to his surprise and dismay, the welcoming activities were awful and filled with chaos. He was not provided relevant material to learn about the company, its operations, or activities. Neither was he introduced to the rules and regulations that he should follow as an employee.
He was just provided a computer, and after three days, he was attached to a team and he was plunged into project tasks, without even being properly introduced to the whole team.
After a month, Tom is now a dejected employee, with least enthusiasm for his own tasks – leave alone the company’s growth and productivity.
This scenario – which is prevalent in many companies – explains the significance of a successful onboarding training program, to enhance the confidence and skillset of employees.
The very purpose of onboard training is welcoming new employees and to ensure that they are well-equipped with all the required information to succeed at their job. It should serve as a guiding path for them to achieve career goals.
