Your onboarding process is your best opportunity to get new hires on the right track.
Dropping new hires into their roles with just a few hours of paperwork and training and expecting them to be successful isn’t realistic. In order to prepare new hires and transitioning employees to perform their best, they must fully integrated into the company and their new roles. The best way to do so is through a proper onboarding program with engaging activities.
Onboarding should always be a top priority.
Employee onboarding activities introduce your new hires to the important components of your organization: corporate culture, values, resources and people. From training to socialization to goals and metrics, these activities help to build the experience for the new employee. Onboarding activities are an opportunity for employees to settle into their new role and department, understand how they affect the business, and get a feel for what type of productivity and behaviors are expected from them.
Onboarding benefits your new hire - and your bottom line.
The Society for Human Resources Management and TalentWise found that organizations with an engaging onboarding program retained more than 9 out of 10 of their first-year employees. Studies done by the Aberdeen Group and ICMS indicate that onboarding improves company ROI by more than $79,000 each year.
In the big picture, onboarding new employees improves engagement, productivity and retention. That’s why Work Institute knows it’s crucial to take an in-depth look at your current program, survey new hires up to one year, and evaluate the metrics to determine what’s working, and what’s hurting you and your employees.
