Are you setting your valuable new hire up for success?
Your organization has just successfully completed the hiring process and is expecting a new employee to start. Now starts the critical onboarding process. Did you know that 5% of new employees quit immediately after a disastrous first day? Additionally, 20% of employees will leave within the first 45 days of employment (Pellikaan).
If you have thought about making your onboarding process better, you are not alone. According to Brandon Hall’s onboarding survey, 98% of respondents wanted to improve their onboarding process, and more specifically the new hire experience (CK Blog).
So what are some onboarding strategies that some successful organizations use? Some common ones CK Blog mentions are:
Start Onboarding before the start date!
Make it a personal and create an experience
Involve the right people
Promote Inclusion and Assimilation
These are only a few methods and even so, they require planning and proper execution. A strong onboarding process can help set a new hire up for success and allow them to be confident in their decision to work at your organization.
