Gartner Glossary


Onboarding is the business process that organizations execute from the point at which a job applicant has accepted an offer of employment to the point at which the new employee is productive at work. The onboarding software includes administrative activities (enrolling in benefits), provisioning activities (assigning office space, user identification and employer property) and orientation (connecting with colleagues and training). Some organizations include employee performance management as part of onboarding.
