What is onboarding?

Onboarding is an Anglicization of onboarding. It's all about training employees on a social and process level. HR plays an important role in this and often sets up a standard process for the onboarding of new employees. This process is recorded in an onboarding program.

In this program, a new employee gets to know colleagues and is trained in the work that needs to be carried out.

Why is onboarding important?

Onboarding is important as a large proportion of employees leave within the first 90 days. This is often caused by different expectations, team dynamics and role ambiguity.

In addition to its influence on turnover, onboarding also has a direct influence on an employee's productivity. Poor onboarding results in an employee taking longer to perform at the level expected.

How long does onboarding take?

An onboarding program usually lasts between 3 and 9 months. The largest time investment is therefore often in an employee's first months. A more complex job profile will require more time.


A study by the Society for Human Resource Management ( SHRM ) shows that an effective onboarding program lasts an average of 6-12 months. This is consistent with the experiences of companies such as Google and Microsoft, where onboarding programs include extensive training and mentoring programs that focus on both technical skills and cultural integration.

AI for onboarding, what does that look like?

During the onboarding program, it is important to keep a close eye on what is going on among new employees. If you don't do this properly, you will soon be faced with surprises and departure will be difficult to prevent.

This is easier with the help of AI. Deepler uses AI to survey employees about their experiences in the first months of their employment. This way you can measure their perception of the organization and see what causes dissatisfaction. By then starting a conversation about this, you ensure that an employee goes through a smooth and effective onboarding.

Finally, onboarding also requires many administrative and repetitive challenges. Scheduling conversations, providing access to systems, etc. AI can also offer a solution in this regard.
