Onboarding is a prime opportunity for employers to win the hearts and minds of new employees. The old adage still holds true: "You never get a second chance to make a first impression." With that, it’s important to give some thought to what kind of first impression you want new hires to have of your organization. And, if you truly want to design an onboarding program that drives retention and performance, you need to build a sustainable and robust program. Studies show that organizations that offer new employees a strong onboarding process improve retention by 82% and improve productivity by over 70%.
Onboarding is different than training. Every new employee that is brought into an organization will need to be trained to be effective. But onboarding is a greater concept that encompasses training. Onboarding is the entire experience for your new employee for their first 30 to 90 days at the organization. The first six months is like the honeymoon period of a new job. It is crucial for employers to take advantage of the power of the first six months to turn new hires into long-term valuable employees. That’s why onboarding is important.
