It is important to indicate that it will be The human resources area is in charge of designing and coordinating the entire “Onboarding” process. but it involves the entire company.

The basic difference between a traditional Welcome Plan and “Onboarding” is that the former, generally, only consist of the one-way transmission of information by the company to the new worker and the application of some specific training action. for a few days while “Onboarding”,  It involves leading and guiding the new worker so that he or she assumes the corporate culture, gets involved and fits into the team in a dynamic way during a period that can extend up to a year, starting even in the selection process itself.

“Onboarding” must be adapted and flexible depending on the characteristics of the company, the sector in which it operates and the particularities of the position immersed in the process. There are more operational jobs with repetitive, homogeneous and routine functions where effective integration can be achieved in a few weeks and others, with many managerial functions that require greater coordination with other people and more time for acclimatization.
