The onboarding experience is strongly correlated with a number of important employee experience and engagement KPIs including tenure, ramp time, and advocacy. By gathering information from each new hire and tracking items such as satisfaction, manager feedback, and the effectiveness of orientation processes, HR leaders and managers can maximize and optimize the investment they make in hiring and training new employees.

Onboarding surveys can be sent at any time, but it’s important to send them soon after the onboarding process because waiting too long could risk missing out on valuable insights as the experience won’t be fresh in employees’ minds. They should be no more than 10 total survey questions and ask direct questions about changes employees would like to see.
