An effective onboarding program starts with their manager and can increase new employee acclimation and productivity, as well as greatly decreasing employee turnover.
Onboarding is different from traditional orientation. A manager’s goal in onboarding is to:
- Create a sense of belonging, commitment and excellence in your environment
- Help the employee understand their role in your department and its value to the overall mission of WPI
- Provide the employee with tools to be successful and strategies to navigate within the new role
It is important for managers to acclimate their new employee to WPI and help with their learning and building connections throughout our campus community.
