An Effective Onboarding Program is a Business Essential in 2022
Does your hiring and onboarding process cost you unnecessarily? Did you know:
-Nearly 1/3 of people are job searching within six months of employment
-Almost 1/3 of externally hired executives miss expectations in the first two years
-With 10-15% annual attrition, companies lose about 60% of their entire talent base within four years
Introducing an onboarding program in to your hiring process can mean the difference between retaining your millennial employees or watching them walk out the door after several months. Companies 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.
A strategic onboarding plan can dramatically impact your business. 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.

Why is it Important to Attend?
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?
If you’re like most good organizations, you’re doing something more. The Aberdeen Group reported that 70 percent of all organizations currently deploy some sort of onboarding program with new hires, especially millennials. While this is a good thing, there is great variability in the focus, depth, and length of these programs.
The most superficial tend to provide surface-level “meet and greets” and focus on initial paperwork and process knowledge. Others go deeper, focusing on helping new hires learn to navigate the organization’s culture and understand the informal organization and key players.
Remember, you never get a second chance to make a good first impression. Onboarding isn’t just about facts; it’s about feeling, too. Effective onboarding programs provide an experience which helps new hires and leaders affirm that they made the right career move. This training will cover what you need to ensure your organization is building a stable, committed productive workforce from the start.
