You’ve made your decision about whom to hire. You’ve gotten them excited about their new job. You’re excited about what they can bring to your team. Now what?
Introducing an onboarding program into your hiring process can mean the difference between retaining top employees or watching them walk out the door after several months. Organizations who implement an effective onboarding program during the first three months of the new hire employment experience, will have 31% less turnover than those who don’t according to the Aberdeen Group.
Onboarding is important because it introduces the employee to the company’s culture and expectations and gives the employee the vital training and information needed to succeed in their new position. Also, a new hire’s compatibility or culture fit will likely be determined during the onboarding process. This can save the employer from a prolonged investment into the wrong person.
Therefore, investing in an onboarding process will help reduce turnover and increase new hire effectiveness. An onboarding program isn’t just a routine checklist; it should be a comprehensive process that makes the new employee as well as the company confident they made the right choice and confident they can succeed in their new job.
