The purpose of onboarding is to move new employees to higher levels of productivity faster. Our campus onboarding philosophy is based on the research of Mark Stein and Lilith Christiansen which encompasses the entire first year experience of a new employee. Onboarding is a process, not an event.
The four pillars that support our onboarding philosophy are:
Interpersonal Network Development
Strategy Immersion & Direction
Early Career Support
The four phases of onboarding a new employee will move through during the first year are:
