Reinventing employee inductions to suit new concerns and issues of incoming hires is critical to help them cement a sense of belonging and commitment to the job, team and company.
Rather than just integrating information, it is more important than ever to build a support system for incoming talent right from their first contact point with the company.
“On-boarding crucially needs to be considered as part of the overall talent management proposition,” says Anish Lalchandani, head of talent & learning operations at Standard Chartered Bank.
“Cross-functional engagement of various teams in HR and outside is critical in any on-boarding strategy. Line managers need to play key roles in helping the new joiner integrate, which will lead to overall better engagement, enhanced performance and loyalty.”
Lalchandani will be sharing more on these insights as a panellist at Human Resources’ inaugural learning and development conference, Employee Effectiveness 2014.
Hear from him and other senior HR leaders in this two-day conference on 18-19th June, as they debate the best ways to adapt and innovate within induction sessions and address the top pitfalls encountered when on-boarding new employees.
If you wish to establish the right stage for your valuable talent, this is an event not to be missed!
