There’s no question that the job market has changed drastically in the last eighteen months, and if we’re being candid, it shows no signs of going back to the way things once were. Now more than ever, it’s not only crucial that you find the right employees, but that they’re also onboarded into your company’s community and culture in a way that sets them up for long-term success.
As hiring managers, you have many critical responsibilities that rest on your shoulders, and in our experience, onboarding can be one of the most challenging tasks to manage efficiently.
This is also a pain point for many hiring managers who find that their onboarding solution isn’t always explicitly and clearly defined, which can lead to inefficient uses of time and resources. Every company is unique, and no two onboarding processes are the same, which can be challenging when trying to look for benchmarks and examples to model your own onboarding after. And since there are no “cookie-cutter” solutions that will be 100% effective, you’re typically tasked with building your own onboarding solution from scratch, or using whatever process you inherited when you became the hiring manager.
If you’re tired of your inefficient employee onboarding process, we’re here to help.
Why Onboarding is Critical
When you hire someone, you use an interviewing process to properly vet them to see if they’re a fit for your organization. However, once they’re hired, an unspoken thing that often occurs is that the employee uses the first week or two of a new position as an interview for you. Some people will even leave a job if the onboarding process seems lackluster, unorganized, or unprofessional. Think about it: the onboarding process is your first impression to show your employees that you’re a professional company that deserves their very best efforts and loyalty. It’s a sad truth, but many companies have an unstructured “seat of the pants” onboarding for new employees. If you had to honestly rate your existing onboarding process on a scale from one to ten, what would you give it?
Onboarding Software is What You Need
Think of all the software tools you use throughout your day– there’s software that specializes in just about everything nowadays. You’d never dream of using a paper and pencil ledger when you have spreadsheet software that is far more powerful and quick at your fingertips.

If so, it’s time to make the shift into the current age, and get rid of your inefficient onboarding solution.
