Preboarding, onboarding, offboarding: they are probably the most undervalued HR processes. However, we know that with good onboarding, you can create an impressive start and make sure your employees are engaged and productive. Do you want that too?

Onboarding goes much further than getting a new employee to shake a few hands and explaining procedures on their first day of work. Onboarding is a way to exceed expectations, from the moment someone hears they've got the job to months after their first day of work.

During this training, you will discover how to ensure you have productive and engaged employees. This helps you make your employees feel part of the team, at home in the organization, and clear about what is expected of them. Onboarding is the foundation.


Improve Onboarding

During this masterclass, you will receive many practical tips and you will start working on your own onboarding plan. These topics will be covered:

Onboarding strategy

  • The business case for onboarding.
  • How to exceed expectations during pre-boarding.
  • Critical success factors for a good start as a new employee.
  • Learning objectives for different moments, e.g. pre-boarding, the first working day, the first working week, after 3 months, and after 9 months.

    Create an impressive start

  • Everything you need to know about setting up and optimizing an effective onboarding program.
  • A workshop and action plan for your onboarding program.
  • Checklists for pre-boarding, the first day of work, buddy or mentor program, and (virtual) onboarding.
  • Discussion about online tools and systems.
  • Inspiration from the best onboarding programs.
In a clear and motivating lesson, Daan and Jacco managed to keep the participants' attention. They ensured a good balance between theory and practice and there was sufficient room for interaction with the group. This made you think and real situations were involved, good tips were given, I gained good insights and the importance of good onboarding for every organization was discussed. The lesson also served as a good motivation to invest time in the preparation of an (even) better onboarding. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
