MetadataShow full item record
Onboarding processes have become standard best practice across organizations and businesses when it comes to training new employees. These processes have proven to be one of the most important factors that employers can implement at an early stage of employment to ensure employees understand their new role and how they fit within the organization. Establishing an effective onboarding process can increase employee productivity and can also help the new employee build confidence to start supporting their new team at a faster rate. Organizations have been utilizing onboarding processes for new employees for decades. Most recently, organizations have recognized the need to modify their onboarding processes to include new methods for training and orientating new research staff, such as asynchronous learning tools. These new methods can include building a repository to make these tools accessible to employees. As such, this Capstone Project describes the need for asynchronous onboarding sessions, why this is important, and the design and development of new onboarding processes that can be utilized by organizations in need of updating their onboarding process.
