An onboarding plan is a structured program designed to welcome and facilitate the integration of new employees into a company. During this stage, detailed company information is provided, along with the establishment of roles and responsibilities for the new hires.
The initial interaction between the company and its new employees is crucial. Not only is the goal to build a strong relationship, but this moment also influences new hires to join the project with enthusiasm.
Therefore, it’s important to create an onboarding plan aligned with the organization’s values and objectives. Consider the following:

Afterwards, introduce new employees to relevant departments so they have the opportunity to get to know the entire company and their colleagues.
If you’re planning onboarding for many people, do it by department or assign a supervisor per team for specialized onboarding. This way, the new employee can learn about their role and how to perform it. Make sure you also have the necessary tools to enhance their performance.
In addition to creating a compelling company presentation, you can digitalize parts of your onboarding plan. We recommend developing small e-learning modules as they are particularly effective for onboarding due to their efficiency and engagement.
You can include interactive resources to make them dynamic and conduct brief assessments to measure the reach of your training.
