When you’re welcoming a new employee to your organization, there’s so much for them to learn as they get accustomed to their new role and work environment.
A robust employee onboarding system can make this process as smooth and enjoyable as possible for everyone involved — including you! When you have onboarding training paths that new hires can work through on their own, you’ll have more time to focus on other work without the need to present the same content over and over.
Pinnacle Series, our flagship e-learning and knowledge management system, was built for scenarios just like this! Here are six Pinnacle Series features to help with employee onboarding at your organization:
We’ll dive into the details of these employee onboarding features below.
When you’re onboarding a new employee, you don’t want to overwhelm them with emails, attachments, instant messages, printed information, in-person training sessions, or phone calls. Presenting information in too many different forms and locations makes it harder to absorb and keep track of for future reference. Pinnacle Series supports custom content, so you can upload training videos, documents, workflows, guidelines, and everything you need for employee onboarding in one easy-to-find place.
It can be challenging to get an exact idea of what skillset a new employee brings to your organization. Which software and skills do they know at a high level, and where could they benefit from some additional training? We’ve got it covered. Pinnacle Series has a partnership with KnowledgeSmart, which allows employees to take assessments on essential AEC software programs like AutoCAD, Revit, BIM, and others. Those results are then used to generate personalized training plans, including Pinnacle content to improve their skills without wasting time re-learning things they know.
Administrators in Pinnacle can easily monitor the progress of employee onboarding and training, assign courses and learning paths, and optionally choose due dates for assignments. This makes it easy for managers to keep track of where everyone is in their training, especially if you’re onboarding multiple employees at the same time.
In today’s modern world, employees can be scattered around the country, working from home locally, traveling to various offices, and so on. Pinnacle Series makes employee onboarding easy, even when you’re handling it remotely. Once you’ve added the new employee as a user, they can access their content from anywhere and even download it to their PC or mobile device to take on the go.
As your new employees get used to working with their teams at your organization, Pinnacle’s Work Groups feature makes it easy to loop them into projects. Work Groups allow you to house project-specific information and communication in one place, so it’s all there for the latest team member to catch up on.
Hiring and employee onboarding is a great thing when you need to expand your team as your company grows. However, if you’re doing it because you need to replace employees who are leaving, the question becomes how to reduce employee turnover.
