Improve Organizational Performance by Evolving from 'Onboarding Employees' to 'Managing Worker Transitions'

What does it take to create a comprehensive onboarding program focused on employee assimilation and retention?

Most HR organizations tend to focus on the “moment of truth” – the first few steps involved in onboarding a new employee, that are primarily administrative and compliance tasks. 

Read Gartner’s recommendations on how to create a more comprehensive employee onboarding program that focuses on improving workforce assimilation, engagement, and retention by:

  • Fixing the day #1 horror stories – by automating the administrative and provisioning aspects of onboarding that go beyond HR – including IT, facilities and procurement, and other departments­
  • Going beyond day #1 to fix other “work events” – by expanding onboarding processes to streamline other transitions in the employment life cycle ‑ e.g., job changes, transfers, promotions, relocations and terminations
  • Expanding onboarding processes to include additional worker types – e.g., the contingent workforce and the need for more structured processes for onboarding this rapidly growing segment of the workforce
