Onboarding: Driving Employee Happiness and Retention
Jill Witty, VP of Talent & Operations, Entelo.
You’ve hired a cohort of new hires- the hard part is behind you, right? Not so fast. Studies show that employees are more likely to leave their new job during their first 12 months in a role than at any other time in their tenure. As a result, onboarding may be the most important process for your organization to get right. Through effective onboarding, you can reduce attrition, increase hiring manager and employee satisfaction, and convert employees to company advocates. When developing a plan for company onboarding, organizations should take a holistic approach with the end in mind; with the goals, objectives, and culture serving as the guiding lights for the entire process.
You will learn to:
• Make new hires feel included and integrated in company culture, before they even start
• Balance systems, tools, training, and relationship-building
• Embed coaching, mentorship, and professional development to accelerate new hire productivity
