    HR Process

    There is one thing I am not sure. My colleagues call the process of getting people onboard "check-in process" and the process of getting people "offboard" "check-out process". "Check-in" "Check-out" sound like in a hotel, hehe... Are these words right? Many thanks! Em

    Yes. To what does "on board" refer?

    Re: HR Process

    The company I work for calls the new-hire orientation process the "on-boarding" process. It gets you successfully on-board, using a ship metaphor. It includes everything from where to go if there's a file alarm to how to set up your voicemail account to getting your travel and expense credit card, as well as mini-presentations that explain the various functions and areas of the company. It's quite thorough.

    I've never heard of a check-out of "off-boarding" process, though usually a company tries to have an "exit interview" if you're leaving on good terms.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
