Onboarding and Offboarding

Onboarding and Offboarding

Throwing new team members into a dusty cubicle with drawers that are loaded with ketchup packets without a proper introduction to their new company doesn’t exactly give off the “this is going to be an awesome job” vibe.  That’s where I come in. 

My onboarding process is designed to help new team members integrate into your company's culture and operations as quickly and as smoothly as possible. It typically includes activities such as orientation sessions including a benefits overview, coordinating training, introductions to colleagues, and a review of the company's policies and procedures. An effective onboarding process can help avoid potential buyer’s remorse for new team members.  Instead, they feel welcomed, engaged, and productive from the very start, which can lead to higher retention rates, better job performance, and greater job satisfaction.

On the other hand, an offboarding process is designed to help employees leave a company in a professional and respectful manner. It typically includes activities such as exit interviews, the return of company property, the transfer of knowledge and responsibilities to other team members, and the collection of feedback from departing employees. An effective offboarding process can help ensure that departing employees feel valued and respected, reduce the risk of legal disputes or negative feedback on review sites, and preserve important knowledge and relationships within the company.

Overall, both onboarding and offboarding processes are important for creating a positive employee experience, building a strong company culture, and maintaining a productive and cohesive team.
