After the new hire onboarding experience, 1 in 5
new hires is unlikely to recommend an employer to a friend or family member. That’s no surprise, given that 58 percent
of organizations say their onboarding program is focused on processes and paperwork. It’s also no surprise that 30 percent
of job seekers have left a job within 90 days of starting.
Employee onboarding is your organization’s opportunity to reinforce a candidate’s decision to join your company, welcome them, and set them up for long-term success. The best programs are structured and strategic, rather than administrative, with a focus on people, not paperwork. Innovative companies are offering online new hire orientation
prior to the employee’s start date, so the first day can be about meaningful introductions, early learning, and celebration.
