Onboarding - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rather than delegating the job of training the newcomer to a co-worker (called the "Just follow Joe around" method by one commentator) [4] or having the employee watch a video presentation, or letting the employee learn on his or her own by trial and error, proponents of onboarding advocate assigning the process to a person designated as an "onboarding manager", or a similar title reflecting specific responsibility for new hires.

Interesting take on managing new hires. I wonder how many companies can afford an "onboarding manager" ?
