NEO is not a one day event, but rather a process that begins after their acceptance of the job and extends through the first year of their employment. Studies show that the new arrival's primary concerns are three things--my job, my boss, and my coworkers. Dealing with new employee jitters and uncertainties is a high priority in orientation programs. How long this mental mayhem lasts may depend a great deal on employee orientation. It’s been said that new hires have about 90 days to “prove” themselves in their new workplace. According to the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM), 500,000 Fortune 500 managers change jobs every year while, overall, managers change jobs every 2 – 4 years. Non-management employees may change jobs even more frequently. The process of orienting new employees to their new position, their new work environment, and their new colleagues takes time and if not done effectively, the new hire leaves and goes elsewhere. Onboarding process for new hires welcomes and integrates the new hire into their new position and workplace so they become engaged and committed to their role in assisting the organization in reaching its mission. Employee onboarding is a strategy and a process that extends well beyond the first day on the job. It is a critical process to get the new hire off and running in their new environment, their new position, and with new colleagues enabling them to enjoy their work and their employer. Onboarding needs to include fun activities, using “buddies” to streamline the new hire’s experience, beginning from the point of the job offer. It is one of the most important elements an employer should invest in. PRIORITY:3END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
