Organizations conduct training on a variety of topics, but employee onboarding training is one of the most critical to ensure employee engagement and retention.
Your new hires have just completed onboarding, but they’ve already started forgetting the training. To make your onboarding process more effective, you’ll want to make sure you have a follow-up plan in place.
Before you begin your training reinforcement program, you’ll want to make sure that the organization fully understands the reinforcement goals.
There are a few best practices that every onboarding reinforcement program should follow:
During a reinforcement program, you’ll constantly be gathering information about your new hires' progress. Reinforcement helps guide new hires through the onboarding process, giving them the ability to fully understand their training. Your program is also an effective tool for assessing training impact and proving behavior change over time.
At Mindmarker, we coach our clients to constantly create Actionable Intelligence about what’s happening during reinforcement and why. This data can be used to improve future onboarding training programs.
Training new hires takes time, patience, and an impactful onboarding process. How do you know your new hires are getting the most out of your program?
