Employee Onboarding Survey 
The best tool for training and retaining your talent.

New employee onboarding shouldn’t be an afterthought.

Studies show that after recruiting, employee onboarding ranks as the next highest business impact for the large majority of organizations. Compared to businesses with little onboarding plan or process, businesses that execute advanced onboarding programs well can expect to nearly double corporate revenue growth and profit margins. In addition to increased ROI, data shows that those businesses who strategically onboard employees, enjoy faster productivity for new hires, better retention rates, increased performance and recruiting.

In the most simple terms, employee onboarding is part of an integrated approach to immerse new hires into the corporate culture of your organization, and to ensure proper training and understanding of job functions.

Most new workers want on-the-job training and mentorship.

An employee onboarding process is critical for successful employee performance and employee retention. Work Institute’s onboarding survey is administered to new hires, in order to capture their experience during the onboarding phase, as well as measure the program’s effectiveness. From pre-orientation, to orientation, first day, week, month and 90 days on the job - our survey is designed to capture metrics from each phase of the process. Our integrated approach is pivotal in measuring and analyzing the success of the onboarding program.

Capture your new hires’ experiences, and measure your program’s effectiveness. Empower employees, boost performance - and increase your bottom line.

Companies that realize the benefits of a well-defined onboarding program reap the benefits. If you’re a corporate leader having difficulty recruiting top talent, experiencing increased new employee turnover, or observing new hires struggle to become high-performance employees, consider measuring and analyzing your onboarding program. Benefits of a great onboarding program can include:

  • Improving on-the-job performance of new employees
  • Reducing “first day stress” of new hires
  • Engaging employees - from the very beginning
  • Increasing employee retention rates
  • Boosting your talent brand
  • Increase recruiting measures

Onboarding surveys let you know what you’re missing - and what your new hires really need.

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.
