You’ve made your decision about whom to hire. You’ve gotten them excited about their new job. You’re excited about what they can bring to your team. Now what?
Want your new hire to hit the ground running?
You have to give them the right tools & education.
What is the best way to do that?
A comprehensive on boarding process.
On boarding is a prime opportunity for employers to win the hearts and minds of new employees. Don’t waste it.
On boarding is Much More Than “New Hire Orientation”
All too often, companies make the same hiring mistake: They assume that having a great, talented candidate say yes to the job means that the hard part is over. Maybe that’s true if you don’t value creating a lasting relationship with your new employee – but if you do, then you should be paying special attention to your employee on boarding process.
This may come as a surprise, but on boarding has the potential to make or break your new hire’s experience and retention rate 59% of HR professionals think that the next few years will bring a major battle to retain talented and top-performing candidates. While it’s easy to match perks and salary, it’s much harder to deliver on the intangible reasons why employees stick around, such as good rapport with managers and a thriving company culture. With an on boarding process, however, you can build a strong foundation for the intangible elements that create an amazing work culture, and use that to attract and retain top talent. 69% of employees are more likely to stay for at least three years after a great on boarding experience. This has also proven to create 20% higher engagement, 50% higher retention and 54% higher productivity.
Every executive knows that keeping employees retained for longer saves the company a ton of money down the line. The very first place to start is with your on boarding process for new employees.
