The onboarding process occurs right after the interview phase, and is when the new hire is introduced to the organization. The purpose of onboarding is to alleviate any anxieties and extend a warm welcome to the new employee. It’s important to let this person know that they are an important element in the group; and that they are going to be valued.
In this Vantage Point Recruiting podcast, Jay Casavant and Uli Stewart talk about their experience with onboarding and share tips on how employers, as well as job seekers/new employees, can prepare.
