Successful Onboarding is a collaborative effort amongst the entire organization. Each division, department, director, and manager has a responsibility to ensure that your employee’s first days, weeks, and months on the job provide a successful launch to their career. It is critically important that you provide your new employee with the foundation, tools, resources, and organizational perspective that ensures rapid inclusion within our workforce and our culture.

The Onboarding process begins at the time of an accepted job offer and it continues through your employee’s first 90 days of employment.This is not to say that Onboarding stops after 90 days. You are responsible for mentoring your new employee as they continue to develop and grow their knowledge, skills and abilities in order to be a productive member of your team. In the table below you will find a helpful guide, checklist and other tools to onboard your new employee for both the Hiring Manager and Mentor.

If your employee attends a new hire orientation session, he/she automatically receives survey assessments at 30, 60, and 90 day intervals to gauge their Onboarding experience.  These surveys are delivered to the email address indicated on their employment application. For more information on Onboarding for your new employee please visit our Onboarding website at www.in.gov/spd/onboarding/welcome.
