One of the great challenges of personnel management for 2021 is to ensure the coexistence between the objectives of companies and the aspirations of their professionals. Here are some of the great benefits of supporting executive selection with Onboarding.
The ‘Onboarding Selection’, beyond the traditional personal selection
The pandemic has brought many changes, including new interests and needs for businesses and applicants. Integration selection is precisely about aligning the expectations and goals of each party and creating an opportunity for success for both.
Unlike a traditional selection, Onboarding goes even further; A third phase of the recruitment process is added to the definition of the application, to the assessment interviews and to the choice of candidates: the accompaniment of this person during the first 30 to 45 days following his constitution to guarantee his integration and cement a mutual relationship of trust and satisfaction between her and the company. Thus, if onboarding is included in the same managerial selection process, the success rate increases considerably, ensuring the integration and permanence of the new employee in the company.
Digitization, an ally of the integration of talents
In the current context, a good Onboarding process that adapts to the digitization of the work environment and to the social integration of the new employee, makes it possible to transform the challenges of this transformation accelerated by the pandemic into great opportunities.
Many companies have found it more difficult and uncertain to integrate a managerial position into their company from a distance.

And, since it’s just as important to maintain socialization and not just the work-related aspects, you can take even more out of the digital age by scheduling virtual coffees or vermouths after work with colleagues and thus start creating. a closer bond. the people of the new business.
Incorporate remote talents
Digital transformation is on the agenda for HR. The use of new technologies in selection processes was starting to spread to many companies, but the pandemic made it a necessity.
Despite the fact that face-to-face interviews bring a special warmth, a fully digital recruiting process can not only be just as effective, but also offers certain advantages such as flexibility, process automation or the possibility of being able to serve a greater number of candidates.
If, in addition, appreciative gaze is applied to these remote processes, as in onboarding processes, a much more complete picture of the interviewee will be obtained. It will not only be his qualities, but also his skills and soft skills, as well as remarkable personality traits, that will complete his profile.
In addition, as a result of Covid-19, the use of tools to conduct video interviews has increased to exceed 150% growth. This development is linked both to current market needs, requiring trained and experienced talents in the digital world.
