Organizations with a strong onboarding process improve new hire retention by 82 percent. Since employee onboarding is one of the most significant predictors of employee success, why isn’t standardized onboarding a top priority for all organizations and their leaders? Lack of time, budget, or resources are often cited, but these employees are your greatest investment! With the ongoing drop in labor force participation, employers must focus on retention now more than ever. Employee onboarding provides the foundation for new hire success and contributes to boosting new hire productivity by over 70%. Learn the three essential elements to an onboarding program – organizational, technical, and social – to place your employees on the path to success. Katherine Shenar provides 2023 data in this updated version of a 2022 webinar.
