For most people it’s really scary to change jobs and because of that it’s really important that you make sure that your onboarding is on point.
Onboarding is the art of making your new hires feel welcome and appreciated at their new place of employment.
The strategic employee onboarding process is a structured way to make your new hire familiar with your vision, mission, values and is also fundamental in getting employees to be the best version of themselves.
The importance of employee onboarding
New employee onboarding may be one of the most overlooked yet most important parts of a company. We all know that the company success can be attributed to the level of talented employees but why do we usually spend so little time onboarding them?
When you don’t onboard your employees, you will likely have a way higher employee turnover than a company that has their onboarding process locked in place.
This is something that you should look out for because each time you lose an employee, you basically lose the chance to create a really talented and valued team member.
If you’re competing with a company that has great onboarding and low employee turnover, you’ll likely lose that competition because the other company has better trained and more confident employees than you do.
So, we can agree that having a strong employee onboarding process is a must have for every HR manager or business owner that is responsible for onboarding newly hired employees.
