Four Critical Employee Onboarding Practices in a Rapidly Changing Workplace

Onboarding is an effective way to get your teams working together. You can promote interactions across divisions and functional areas by creating onboarding activities that require teamwork. For example, you can have new employees work on cross-functional teams on a collaborative project. For employees in new roles or at a newly merged company, you might choose to create a social onboarding task. These types of interactions help employees feel connected to something bigger than themselves. These types of activities also help the employee get familiar with the tools and technology available to them in their new role. It also helps them to see how that technology might be useful in solving problems down the road.
