Ensure a smooth transition from best candidate to star employee. Onboarding is the process of socializing new employees into the organization.  Onboarding of employees begins well before traditional new-hire orientation and has long reaching implications.  At the conclusion of the class you will have constructed an Onboarding Program for use in your own organization.
