What is the significance of Induction and Onboarding Training for organizations?

Did you know that within the first 45 days of joining a new organization, one in 5 employees decides if they should opt out?

Recruitment is a time-consuming and expensive process. Once you get the right candidates, it’s imperative to have measures in place to induct them as efficiently as possible.

What approaches can you adopt to deliver a high-impact Induction and Onboarding program?

Traditionally, organizations worked with centralized corporate training centers where they delivered Instructor-Led Induction Training (ILT) for their new employees. With changed workplace dynamics, the ILT solutions necessarily need to be reconsidered.

There are now two significant ways to deliver these programs.

  • Approach 1: With the proliferation of online learning, organizations have now realized that there is an opportunity to tap into eLearning or mLearning as part of the Induction and Onboarding process.
  • Approach 2: Blended Induction and Onboarding programs that deliver a happy median between 100% VILT on the one hand and a totally eLearning/mLearning strategy on the other. They balance the human contact factor and self-paced training very effectively.

For nearly two decades now, we have been creating several Induction and Onboarding programs for our customers featuring highly immersive learning strategies in both these modes.

How can EI enhance the impact of Induction and Onboarding Training programs?

The success of any staffing initiative lies not just in finding and hiring the right talent but also in how quickly new hires get productive.

Time-to-productivity is a measure of the time taken by employees from being hired to becoming productive members of the organization’s workforce.

  • The lynchpin to effective time-to-productivity is the employee Induction and Onboarding Training that each new hire receives.
  • The speed at which new inductees become productive often determines the Return on Investment (ROI) generated by corporate training programs at large.
  • Our well-designed employee Induction and Onboarding Training programs play a key role in shortening time-to-productivity for our customers.
