A Strategic Process

Onboarding new hires in an organisation should be a strategic process involving both management and other employees. The onboarding process should be in place for up to one year. Not to be confused with induction, which is necessary, onboarding is a thoroughly comprehensive system.

The critical period, according to the world’s leading Onboarding specialist George Bradt, is the first 100 days. George’s work has been extensively published and is available at the PrimeGenesis website, and his regular blog in Forbes.


…is the process through which new employees acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors to more quickly become effective team members and contributors to your organisation.

Research has demonstrated that the techniques used in onbarding new hires lead to positive outcomes for the new employees, such as higher job satisfaction, better job performance, greater commitment to their employer, a reduction in stress and improved retention.
