Onboarding best practices for startups: Scale and train your team effectively without the resource constraints

Like any other company, your startup needs to hire and train new employees as it continues to grow. Onboarding is crucial for integrating new employees into your company’s culture and ensuring they have the necessary skills. 

However, startups face some unique challenges when it comes to training. By definition, they are young companies, so they often lack well-established onboarding best practices. Startups also operate in highly dynamic markets with new, innovative business models, so they’re constantly under pressure to do things quickly, even when it comes to training. And lastly, they may not have huge budgets set aside for training, because other areas of the business take priority.

The role of e-learning in onboarding training and employee retention

While recruitment is generally considered to be the hardest aspect in enticing a new employee, retention can often prove to be just as, if not, the hardest detail in doing so.

A low retention rate is the result of many factors, such as difficulties in fostering relationships with colleagues, an apathetic workplace or even absentee supervision. When it comes to challenges faced, problems in retention continue to reign for many organizations. Since no organization can thrive without its employees, an onboarding program that is constructive and comprehensive can help mitigate this issue.
