Employee Onboarding & Orientation To Boost Productivity, Teamwork and Retention

Webinar Background :

2024 has arrived and Fast-tracking new employees to productivity is a key business imperative for all employers. The reality is that about 30% of employees don’t make it past their first year and it’s expensive. Good recruitment and hiring can be quickly undone by disorganized poorly executed new employee orientation. It is time for all employers & HR professionals to revisit their onboarding and orientation practices, keeping in mind that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. The research is clear; a systematic comprehensive onboarding process is good business. In fact formal onboarding increases the chance of keeping a new employee for at least 3 years by 69% and one study showed employees were productive two months earlier with an effective program. Employees get up to speed quicker and stay on the job longer when their first year experience is well managed. The last thing you want is to loose a deserving candidate to your competition. Your organization productivity suffers when new hires struggle for weeks. It gets worse: Morale suffers. Turnover soars. And, the time and money you spend on recruiting skyrockets, because good people who are not treated well move on, leaving you to start the hiring process all over.
