You can tell a lot – some say everything – about a company by the way it welcomes new employees.
Onboarding isn’t just a demonstration of your company culture: it’s one of the critical employee engagements that defines, creates and promotes that culture.
Get it right and good things happen:
- New starters feel better about the company
- They step up to full productivity faster
- They stay more aligned with company goals
- They’re more engaged
- They stay longer
Get it wrong and the reverse gear kicks in: people feel less engaged, take longer to achieve productivity and leave sooner.
