It takes extensive resources to identify, interview and hire new team members. Losing those new employees costs even more. Studies show that up to 87% of new employees are not committed to their job until after 6 months. A good onboarding process can go a long way to engaging and retaining your new employees – from the CEO to the receptionist.
Many organizations confuse orientation and onboarding. Onboarding is a management discipline that includes effective orientation but also strategically integrates and accelerates the relationship-building process with the key internal and external stakeholders who need to be key partners in the success of a new hire. The result is accelerated learning and understanding of expectations critical to job performance. Many organizations recognize a need to assess, clarify and optimize their onboarding processes from both tactical and relational perspectives.
