breakroom is. Onboarding is bigger, more powerful. It's
about learning the values of the organization, building
key relationships with teammates and stakeholders,
and understanding goals and expectations so they are
positioned to make meaningful contributions right

have the most difficulty implementing an effective
onboarding program because they'll often need new
hires to complete important paperwork during their
first hours or days on the job. This means the new hire
won't be in the system, may not have access to vital

and clearly communicate an onboarding strategy
for the entire organization that details the roles and
expectations for everyone who may be involved,
