Welcome to the "Deep End" 


Onboarding can be described as "organisational socialisation" and refers to the process used to introduce and integrate new hires to culture, expectations and methods of the organisation during their first year. As new hires begins to learn all the unspoken rules of their new workplace often a sink-or-swim mentality kicks in, until they eventually become acclimatised to their new environment or become disengaged and leave.


With graduates and junior leaders the process of integration and socialisation is often easier, as they hold less memory of long established behav­iours, norms, rituals as conditioned by previous employers. The challenge however, for mid and senior-level executives is to embrace an organisation’s new culture and  “the way we do things around here.”


Vitatalent can assist by onboarding new hires faster by providing a model that integrates culture, values and engagement inter-dependencies.  This process is supported by technology accelerators to monitor, grow and shift cultures proactively right from the onboarding stage.

Vitatalent's Onboarding Acceleration Model

Through research we have identified a series of onboarding accelerators such as:


Accelerator 3 – A high quality relationship with your direct leader is undoubtedly related to favourable onboarding outcomes, including performance and job satisfaction. “According to one estimate, 60% of new hires who fail to onboard successfully cite failure to establish effective working relationships with their line leader as a primary reason." 

Accelerator 4 - Our onboarding programmes provides detailed compatibility reports between the new hire and their direct line leader to fast track and facilitate the building of quality relationships by addressing unspoken expectations right from the start in a quick and un-threatening manner.


Accelerator 5 - To realise a quicker return on talent investment, new hires need to intrinsically understand your organisation's business value chain and core business processes.


Vitatalent's onboarding programmes capture and include these critical elements to ensure all new hires have a solid understanding of your business value chain and are guided by this knowledge right from the start.
