Onboarding is the process of integrating and acculturating new employees into the organization and providing them with the tools, resources, and knowledge to become successful and productive.

Research clearly shows that effective onboarding improves performance, increases engagement, increases retention, and accelerates new employee time to productivity. Investing in effective onboarding helps new employees get up to speed quickly, equips them with the information they need to excel at their jobs, and creates a sense of commitment to the organization.
