New Employee Onboarding Checklists Report

Date: May 16, 2019

Because effective onboarding can play such a strong role in employee retention and overall workforce development, the AMBA recently sought to gather examples of New Employee Onboarding checklists, as well as demographic and HR policy data from U.S. mold builders.

This benchmarking opportunity sought to not only provide HR policy data, but to also give U.S. mold builders real-world examples of onboarding practices. At the end of this report, an addendum of over 20 new employee onboarding checklists and documents are included from surveyed mold manufacturers that provide real-world examples of onboarding at their facilities. These checklists provide both a benchmark for companies with an existing process, as well as a guide for those companies interested in developing one.

Although every mold builder faces unique challenges, stalled workforce development continues to plague the U.S. mold manufacturing industry.


According to the National Association of Manufacturers, in Indiana alone, 87 percent of manufacturers indicate difficulty in recruiting young people. However, this is not due to a lack of available job opportunities. According to a recent Deloitte Insights report, over half of the potential two million jobs that will become available over the next decade in manufacturing will likely go unfilled due to a skills shortage.
