Onboarding Acquired Staff

How do you create the many projects needed to integrate an acquired business?

This course is part of the Certified Acquisition Integration Manager program 

Onboarding is the process of introducing a new employee into a business: making sure that they quickly get up to speed and are engaged in their new position.  Onboarding an entire acquired business is more complex, more emotional, more work and it is more important to be successful.  Poor onboarding often causes employees to leave a business after it is acquired.

In this course we discuss and review the Onboarding Team; we explain how to onboard acquired staff; we outline an onboarding plan, and we provide tips for onboarding.

Having acquired a business, how will you ensure the employees are working productively and are engaged in the new business?
The people are a key asset in a small or mid-size business. How will you ensure they are happy and productive after being acquired?

Onboarding Acquired Staff addresses the following questions

  • What is an Onboarding Team, and what are their responsibilities?
  • What are the elements of integration onboarding?
  • What is the most important part of an integration?
  • How long does an integration take?
  • How are onboarding, orientation, the Day 1 announcement, staff retention, culture related to each other?

This course also includes a large number of tips to help you plan and carry out the onboarding.
