The Who, How and Why of Onboarding

White Paper Published By: Silkroad

Type:  White Paper
Length:  8 pages

An employee’s first few days are critically important, not only because organizations need to get their new hire up to speed as soon as possible, but also because the initial days at a new job hold huge influence over an employee’s decision to stay with the company long term.


While onboarding has typically been geared toward new hires, organizations are now also onboarding transitional workers, to better prepare those moving into managerial or executive roles.


Human Capital Media — the research arm of Chief Learning Officer magazine — partnered with SilkRoad for the “2016 CLO Innovations in Onboarding Survey.” We examined best practices in onboarding to answer these common questions, and more:

  • How do organizations define onboarding and how it fits into their overall strategy?
  • Who is involved in the process and how does technology enhance onboarding efforts?
  • What are examples of successful onboarding outcomes?
