INEFFECTIVE ONBOARDING LEADS TO DISENGAGED EMPLOYEES
Onboarding marks the very beginning of an employee’s journey. It is their first impression of the company as a whole, and first impressions last. Unfortunately, for many companies, employee onboarding is a time-consuming process riddled with risks and inefficiencies. A disconnected onboarding process means disconnected employees, and new hire delays may be harming productivity and employee engagement a lot more than companies think.
With increasing pressure to be competitive in today’s market, companies are always on the hunt for the best talent. The real feat, however, is retaining that talent. When executed effectively, onboarding leads to sustained engagement and reduced time to proficiency. However, a study conducted by the Human Capital Institute reveals that only 40% of participants believe their onboarding is effective at retaining new hires. Additionally, only 20% of those hires leave in their first 45 days. To turn onboarding processes around, HR departments must think about how they can integrate new employees into their organization and get them engaged from day one. A study done by Gallup shows that effective onboarding experiences increase retention, reduce employee ramp-up time, and increase the overall likelihood of engagement. The results revealed 25% turnover improvements and a 25% increase in profitability.
