Employee onboarding is a critical stage in the employee lifecycle and sets the foundation for how successful new hires are likely to be in your organization. A great onboarding experience will help employees adjust to their new role so they can quickly deliver valuable work and thrive in their new environment.

It could also be an important step in reducing unwanted churn. Harvard Business Review reports that 33% of new hires start looking for a new job within 6 months of their first day in the office, and implicates a poor initial experience as a big part of the problem.

Onboarding offers a number of benefits for your business. By assessing and monitoring the quality of your onboarding experience, you can take steps to make sure it’s continually improving, boosting the chances that your newly hired talent will want to stay. You can stay abreast of candidate expectations and be better able to meet them. The knock-on effect on your employer brand will make your company more desirable to quality candidates, too.

Companies can:

  1. Show new hires that their experience is a top priority.
  2. Understand what’s working and what’s not with your current onboarding process.
  3. Pinpoint where change is required and prioritize your efforts efficiently.
  4. Keep up with the market so that candidate expectations are met and exceeded.

Outcomes Delivered

  1. Happy candidates who feel their voice is heard.
  2. A clear picture of your onboarding strengths and weaknesses.
  3. A framework to benchmark your improvements against.
  4. The basis for an ongoing program of improvement.
