    Employee Onboarding Course: Introduction

    This course teaches participants how to gain and retain employees.

    Employee Onboarding Course :Course Outline

    Almost a century after Ford created the ‘Tin Lizzy’ as the first fully production line made car, the captains of industry and even the most hardened capitalists are waking up to the fact that now more than ever, people are the bottom line and not rands and dollars. The company treasure chest is its employees, and what the company has invested in those employees by way of knowledge, training, recognition and many other factors. We can thank technology for that, and we can swear at it as well because for business, and the business of people, it’s a double edged sword. Many people sit at home and earn their daily bread at a company without ever putting a foot down from the foot stool. So, when you’re hiring employees who absolutely have to come in to work, you want to make it worth your while and be sure that the employee is an investment and an asset to your company. The last thing you want to see is the start up cost for new employees every six months. In this workshop we will introduce onboarding practices for the novice as well as managers or executives who already have an onboarding program at their companies. We will explain the purpose and the benefits of having such a program and then we will take you through a professional onboarding program. Which participants may adapt and customize to their own companies. TIP: Do keep a week long checklist for the new employee and schedule a meeting at the end of the first week to see how the employee is coping with the work on the checklist. Do the same thing for the first month. In module five we present a professional checklist which participants can compare with their pre-assignment checklist. We will also help you to customize your checklist during the workshop. In module six we will discuss how onboarding engages the employee which is the objective of onboarding in the first place. Engaged employees display several characteristics that show that they are engaged in the company, one of them is going the extra mile. Getting to the end of the workshop, in module nine we discuss the resiliency of new employees and how learning to be flexible will benefit them and other employees in the company. We will discuss acceptance, self-awareness, embracing adversity, relationships and goal setting. Flexibility and the five steps people can take to become more flexible are also discussed, such as support. In module ten we get around to assigning work and the types of assignments, such as suggestions. We round off by examining the manager’s approach and the importance of constant feedback. 1.
