The demand for user experience professionals continues to rise steadily, expanding into areas such as AI and IOT. College grads and career changers are joining the ranks of UX Teams in increasing numbers each year. Often, there is a gap between book knowledge and experiential knowledge. Studies show that a structured onboarding program leads to higher rates of new hire productivity, engagement, and retention.

In this talk, a case study of the onboarding program created by the UX Services group in Corporate IT will be showcased. Best practices for addressing the onboarding needs of new hires and internal career changers will be covered. You will walk away with strategies to empower new team members, increase productivity on future projects, and build a strong, supportive UX culture on your team. The presenter has years of experience in creating onboarding strategy and curriculum for UX in corporate and academic environments. The best practices shared offer useful ideas for creating UX onboarding materials for your team.
