frolleagues makes your onboarding process more personal and empathetic

The perfect onboarding process, or why it’s so important

It’s important to onboard a new hire properly, and it’s a process that should begin before they’ve even started. Most onboarding workflows focus almost entirely on the administrative and legislative aspects, neglecting the human component.

There are countless checklists, examples of best practice, tips and even onboarding guides. But do any of these things result in good onboarding? None of them give any information on

  • the people themselves
  • their qualifications
  • their skills

And it’s precisely when onboarding Millennials or Digital Natives that these shortcomings emerge.

This young generation wants to be seen. They’re accustomed to presenting themselves at least through photos – and not on LinkedIn either. Instagram and other photo-sharing services are the new Facebooks of this world!

But how do you hold on to members of this generation? Is it enough for them to read some company guidelines or see a list of their future coworkers?

That’s a clear no. According to a 2017 survey by Huafe Lexware, 15% of employees are already thinking about handing in their notice on their first day at a new company. Losing sought-after talent can be far easier than hiring them in the first place.
