What is onboarding training?

When onboarding training is successful, new hires become productive faster — bringing fresh ideas to their teams and helping your company grow.

Onboarding training, also known as induction or orientation training, delivered in the first few days, weeks, and months of a new role, helps people really get an organization’s expectations, culture, and processes.

By training new staff about the culture of your company, their role and responsibilities, and business procedures, you create a solid foundation.

This foundation leads to happier, more productive, and more successful teams.

How onboarding training benefits the entire business

It’s easy to make the case for onboarding training. Strong onboarding training programs lead to lower recruitment costs and higher retention rates, as ⅓ of employees decide in the first week whether they’ll stay or whether they’ll go.

An organization is only as great as its people. Setting up new hires for success from day one, sets up your business for continued success. The combination of good onboarding and training software along with the right training can make the difference between you and other companies.

How onboarding training benefits employees:
  • New hires feel valued and respected in their new workplace — keeping motivation high.

  • Strong onboarding training helps hires adapt to their new role faster.

  • Inspires good communication habits from the start. Introductions to supervisors, team members, and directors help new employees feel more comfortable to approach coworkers later.

How onboarding training benefits organizations:
  • Helps employees hit the ground running. Especially relevant to high-churn industries, where new hires are needed to quickly reduce the workload of other employees.

  • Frees senior team members from time-consuming questions that can be better answered by standardized onboarding training.

  • Reduces disruptions and costly mistakes by keeping workflows in place.

What successful onboarding training looks like

For an onboarding training program to be a success, it needs to go beyond first-day musts and consider long-term needs.

Onboarding training covering all parts of life in your organization is an induction training program that gets the lasting results you want — higher engagement, less disruption, and faster productivity.

Here are a few examples of an onboarding process that covers a broad range of topics:

  • Role and responsibilities

    An in-depth explanation of day-to-day responsibilities and where they fit in the company structure.

  • On-the-job training

    Training to give a new hire the chance to learn and practice the skills and competencies they need to engage in their new role with success.

  • Employee benefits

    Include information a new employee will be wondering about like, career advancement paths, bonuses, vacation time, pension plans, etc.

  • Health and safety induction training

    Training that covers all the necessary knowledge to keep employees safe and ensure compliance with regulations.

  • Workplace security training

    Security training informs employees about professional ethics, harassment laws, and industry guidelines to name a few.

  • Company culture

    No induction process is complete without sharing your company’s vision and values. Familiarizing new hires with your culture leads to a greater sense of purpose and belonging.
