OnBoarding is the process of welcoming new employees to our university community and helping them get started in their roles. This is an important time to set expectations, introduce new employees to the people they will be working with, share the organization’s priorities, mission, and culture, as well as provide training for specific tasks. Our goal at CSUN is to become a destination workplace. The impact and experience we bring to our new-hires gives us the potential to reach the goal of becoming a destination workplace. This begins with improving the OnBoarding process of our new-hires. Employees no longer want to work for a company, but rather work with a company, and it is our focus to ensure we advocate this ideology.

The first impression we give new hires from our institution begins at the OnBoarding process. The most common OnBoarding mistake institutions and organizations make are that HR incorporates administrative tasks which take away from focusing on important matters. A common misconception of the OnBoarding process is that this process is active for a few days and/or a week. A strong OnBoarding experience should last at least one year, to help ensure higher retention. Keep in contact with new hires, and make yourself available when he/she need assistance.
