What is employee onboarding?
Employee onboarding allows businesses to find employees that are equipped with the necessary skills, knowledge and passion to become effective members of the organisation. What is employee onboarding going to bring to your business? Well, it’ll mean you’re welcoming skilled, capable employees into your company who are aligned with your brand values and goals.
We start our employee onboarding process and services with alignment and auditing sessions designed to give us a complete picture of the inner workings of your company. This, in turn, helps us to decide upon the best course of action for onboarding employees. These sessions generally include the following:
- Stakeholder interviews
- Employee culture audit workshops
- Creation of a strategic narrative
- Evaluation and/or refinement of your brand values
- Deciding upon a rallying cry to guide the onboarding process
- HR audits
- Environment audits
Creating an onboarding plan for the new employees
Once we’ve established what your company is all about, we produce a final plan that maps out the full employee onboarding process, covering elements such as:
- Appointing a brand performance review board
- Recruiting internal champions of the new brand direction
- The creation of the formalised onboarding plan
The final stage of producing an onboarding plan for new employees is to carry out a full brand audit. This covers signage, the working environment itself, marketing collateral, internal communications and more, to gain a full understanding of the scope of the work needed to roll out the new brand.
As with all pieces of work, the final deliverable product could be the document with our recommendations. Alternatively, it could be BGN actually proceeding and executing everything we propose as an onboarding plan for new employees – it is entirely up to you.
