Do your new hires quickly become engaged, meeting your performance goals or do they exit within 6 to 12 months? Do you focus on developing employees or are you constantly hiring for the turnover or to replace terminated new hires? If you spend your time hiring rather developing, you need to adjust your approach to onboarding new hires. Onboarding is much more than just new hire orientation. Onboarding is a thoughtfully designed process that supports new hires in meeting performance goals, increases employee retention and enhances business performance.
Much like you evaluate each new hire, the new hire is evaluating their decision to join your organization. This evaluation begins with the initial welcome and is heavily influenced by their ability to understand and meet job-related performance expectations. The onboarding process is critical to ensure the new employee is properly inducted into the organization and successful in meeting performance expectations.
At Insightworks we find it confusing that many organizations fail to recognize the importance and impact of a properly designed, consistent and effective onboarding process. A properly designed onboarding process provides the organization with a more stable workforce; a stable workforce provides the opportunity to develop industry-leading skills, processes, and performance; this leads more engaged, satisfied employees which result in higher profits.
A properly designed onboarding process will support the new employee and provide the foundation for improved business results.
