Orientation and Onboarding

Starting a new job can be an overwhelming experience. Organizations that put time and effort into developing a strong onboarding process for orientation can help set new employees on a path toward success.

Providing employees with a quality orientation and onboarding experience can:

  • Reduce costs
  • Reduce new employee anxiety
  • Reduce employee turnover
  • Save time for supervisors
  • Develop realistic job expectations, positive attitudes and job expectations

LeadingAge’s Center for Workforce Solutions recommends using WeCare Connect, a program that connects an employer to its new and existing employees via phone, email or mobile app. LeadingAge says the software instantly sends the appropriate people email notifications of any issues that may lead to a resignation, allowing an employer to immediately intervene with an individual employee and prevent turnover before it happens.
