“Organizational onboarding” is the area of study that most interests Department of Business Associate Professor Jamie Gruman. Organizational onboarding is the socialization process organizations use to help new hires adjust to new roles and jobs. For larger organizations onboarding is a deliberate process, a function of HR to acclimatize newcomers. Smaller organizations may not even consider the importance of this process.
“Successful onboarding can significantly impact productivity and turnover, and reduce costs for employers,” Gruman explained.
