In addition to the usual induction, more and more companies are using onboarding as professional support for new employees during the settling-in phase in the new working environment. Onboarding is about proactively addressing and avoiding possible irritations in order to ensure a smooth start. As moderators and neutral authorities, we align the role expectations of the employer with those of the new employees in the various phases of onboarding and ensure coherence at the target and action level. A sequence of meaning analyses and interventions in individual and group discussions, tailored to the individual and company-specific situation, ensures that new employees can develop their potential within the new environment as early and smoothly as possible. This has proven to be particularly helpful for management positions.
