Onboarding – meaning “taking on board” – is a term we use to describe the bridge between recruiting staff and employing them, and also their successful integration into the existing business environment.

Against the backdrop of the fierce competition for executives and experts as well as the resources a business is required to invest in the appointment process, onboarding is an essential component of our consultancy work.

We begin this process before a candidate signs their contract by preparing them continually and thoroughly for the working environment that awaits them. We organise plant tours, team discussions and advise our clients when drawing up an effective induction plan. If during a new employee’s first few days at a business their realistic expectations are confirmed, it’s not uncommon for this to have a decisive impact on that person’s motivation, commitment and initiative.

The first step towards systematic staff development now begins with on-site induction.
