I am overseeing the inception of an online onboarding/orientation site for new employees. How do I gather peer-reviewed information/suggestions to complete the project (we need to have it up and running by September 2014)? What are the characteristics of a successful implementation and, conversely, what challenges are we most likely to encounter? Are there any good case studies or user examples of how this can be done successfully?
