Decoding onboarding

Onboarding is the process by which an employee is welcomed and integrated into the company. It refers to the actions taken by a company to integrate new arrivals.                                                                                                                  

Essentially, onboarding serves as the connection between recruitment and retention, offering a structured approach to adapt new employees to their roles, teams and organizational culture. 

Moreover, onboarding is not just about paperwork and formalities, it's about cultivating engagement, facilitating productivity and nurturing a sense of belonging from day one. By providing adequate support and guidance during this transitional period, companies can mitigate the risk of early turnovers and maximize the potential of their new hires.

The term ‘onboarding’ seems to imply a methodology, a process and a tool in addition to a "simple" integration. That's where the employee experience begins.
