Guide to Implementing Pre-Joining Learning Programs

February 18, 2024

With quite a distinction between preboarding and onboarding, the companies with the mindset to leverage the maximum potential of the two are tasting success. Fortune 500 companies hold the process dear to ensure a seamless transition from a candidate to a valued employee. Including every major and minor aspect in an organized manner, the preboarding and pre-joining formalities are a must to consider. 

Eliminating the companies’ lower employee retention rate and engagement by filling the new hires with excitement to join their new workplace, the pre-onboarding process holds high significance.  Let’s learn why and how this aspect works.

What are Pre-Joining Formalities?

Pre-joining time is the period between the employee hiring after signing the offer letter and before the first day of work. The pre-joining process or formalities are carried out during the stated period and involve multiple actions such as paperwork completion, the familiarity of the employees with their teams, colleagues, and seniors, enlightening them about their job role, and informing them about the training process required to fulfill their duties in alignment with company’s objectives. Companies are generally recommended to create a pre-joining checklist to not miss out on critical aspects and ensure fulfillment of the steps in the process.

Challenges For the Companies Without Pre-Joining Learning

Why would a company invest in pre-joining learning activities? Is it extra lavish and possible only with Fortune 500 companies? No. It is the strategy to remove the growth hindrances, remove losses, and gain profits simultaneously. Here are some challenges faced in the absence of pre-joining learning programs:

Delayed Productivity

The pre-joining learning gets the new hires accustomed to the company’s culture, environment, and their specific job role. It makes the employees well aware of all the elements that a company lacking pre-joining facilities would have faced on day one. It helps eliminate the adaptation time, which would have led to delayed productivity.

Mismatched Expectation

The companies lacking pre-joining formalities and learning are dependent on the expectation from the employee to have a complete understanding of deliveries. In the scenario of inability to meet the expectation, the loss is to the company itself. Pre-onboarding eliminates the situation by rewarding the employees everything beforehand and allowing them time and resources to prepare themself accordingly.

Reduced Engagement

The employees are more likely to feel disoriented and demotivated due to a lack of pre-joining formalities and learning. This could lead to lower productivity and employees looking for newer and better opportunities. The consequence, either way, will be higher turnover for the company.

Issues Building Relationships

Lack of interaction with the stakeholders, teams, and colleagues beforehand, not knowing their requirements and principles towards the work leads to hit and trial methods for learning. While the method is accurate, the cost incurred to the company during the situation is not positive. The interaction and details conveyed during the pre-joining formalities offer a solution to avoid the problem.
