Employee Onboarding 
Start new hires on the path to success with a strong onboarding program.

First impressions count.

Employee onboarding is the key to engaging - and retaining new hires. The first few days of a new hire’s employment can set the stage for future growth. Studies show that nearly 1 in 3 employees decide to stay onboard, or jump ship within their first 30 days of employment. Further Aberdeen surveys show that roughly 86% of new hires decisions to stay with a company long-term is made within the first six months of employment.

Employee onboarding starts the moment your new hire arrives, and it begins to affect your bottom line from that moment, as well. Because onboarding greatly impacts employee retention and employee engagement, an effective onboarding process can reduce costly employee turnover. Conducted correctly, onboarding in your company can also lower processing costs, ensure compliance and attract more top-performers.

A win-win initiative.

Employee onboarding isn’t just crucial for your company, it’s critical in the development of your staff. As your new hires become familiar with your company culture, resources, and their job roles, they’ll build relationships, grow their networks and become high-productivity employees. Done correctly,engaging your employees during their initial onboarding process can also strengthen your talent brand by boosting the confidence and pride of new hires - and can generate higher morale and productivity among your workforce.

  • >Reduce stress.

    The first day - even the first few weeks - on the job can cause a significant amount of anxiety for new hires. By conveying to new employees what they need to know before they need to know it, you’ll reduce the stress that naturally occurs in new environments. A proper onboarding process makes it possible for your new employees to focus on their job roles, rather than their nerves.

  • >Reduce time-to-productivity.

    The goal of onboarding new hires is to get them up to speed with employees who are already in your organization, and providing the information and equipment necessary to achieve job proficiency. Reducing the time it takes to get new hires comfortable, confident, and performing means increased productivity and reduced internal costs.

  • >Decrease turnover.

    Onboarding is essential because turnover is expensive. Strategic onboarding programs encourage new hires and engage employees in a way that allows them to understand their values. By onboarding employees, you demonstrate that your business truly cares about its employees and will give those employees the tools they need to succeed. By doing so, you make it less likely that they’ll lose interest and look onward to new opportunities.

  • >Increase job knowledge.

    Understanding the big picture of your company: The mission, values, corporate culture, and vision, allows your new hires to recognize how they relate to your organization. Educating your employees on the front end gives them a chance to develop skills, learn what is expected, how to produce - and how they’ll be evaluated.


Once you become a partner of Work Institute we assign you a Client Services representative. This person will be with you every step of the way – from identifying who needs to be interviewed, crafting the specific study questions, gathering and providing data analysis to building a change management plan to address specific issues and meet predefined business goals.

Your Client Services representative will become an integral part of your internal team by providing research, data, analysis and recommendations along the entire feedback cycle. Their entire focus is your company’s engagement and retention strategies. They find what isn’t working and get it working again saving your hundreds of thousands of dollars in turnover costs.

Once we get the interviews and surveys in place, your Client Services representative will work with you to summarize the major 3-4 trends in bullet form with the supporting raw data as a reference. We will regularly meet with you and any key leaders to discuss what we’ve discovered and will work with you to build a plan of action to make key changes.

Our reporting system is designed to give access to whomever you deem necessary.  Sometimes all organizational leaders want and need to know the research. Sometimes it’s better to have one key internal person managing the process. Whatever the request, we will provide access at no additional charge.

We use our combined experience of close to 30 years in human resources and our ability to capture the specific data you need to design thorough action plans to solve HR issues. For example, just by solving simple issues in recruitment results in hiring the right top talent for your open positions. Hiring the right top talent means reducing turnover significantly. This is what consulting with data can do for you.
