As President of CH Insurance, I’m delighted to share insights into the remarkable impact and effectiveness of orchestrated onboarding. In today's fast-paced world, the success of any organization is deeply intertwined with the seamless integration of new employees and customers into the fabric of our business. The CH Onboarding System is an ever-evolving, learning process, as we adapt and grow to become better and better and refining the customer and employee experience. Let’s explore the value of this process and how it aligns with our core promise of being 'In Your Corner, Every Day… Every Way.'
The Role of Onboarding In This Digital Age
In this digital age, the importance of a well-structured onboarding process can’t be overstated. It sets the tone for the entire journey of an individual with our company, be it an employee or a customer. Utilizing powerful tools that enhance the onboarding experience for both parties is the cornerstone of our commitment to excellence. Designing a balance between technology and personal relationship development is vital to any thriving company’s growth.
The CH Way for New Employees
When welcoming new employees, a thoughtful onboarding process goes far beyond merely providing information about the organization and their role. It’s an opportunity to showcase the company culture, values, and core principles that make insurance fun, the CH Way! By offering a tailored experience, new hires are more likely to feel engaged, motivated, and connected to their teams from day one. We believe it’s a big reason why there’s very little employee turnover with our organization.
Similarly, when onboarding new customers, the process is about more than just transactions. It’s a chance to build a strong foundation for a lasting relationship. We must understand their unique needs, preferences, and challenges to deliver personalized solutions that address their concerns comprehensively. This personal touch fosters trust and loyalty, setting the stage for a long-term partnership.
Continuous Training & Development Opportunities
For employees, onboarding also means offering continuous training and development opportunities, mentoring, and a transparent feedback culture. By empowering them to grow both personally and professionally, we foster a workforce that remains motivated, loyal, and passionate about our shared goals. Volunteerism is at the heart of CH. With our strategic home offices based in downtown Syracuse, alongside the years of aligning with key stakeholders and community organizations, employees can right away get a sense of the pulse and heart of what CH is all about – and how their local, personal involvement matters. Everyone walks their talk from leadership throughout the organization. If you’re a part of the CH Team, you’re a part of giving back to Upstate NY to make the communities we serve a better place to live and work.

As we embrace the power of orchestrated onboarding, our mission to be 'In Your Corner, Every Day… Every Way' is embodied in every interaction.
