Onboarding – the process of helping new employees become fully integrated, contributing members of an organization – is often thought of as one of the most important steps in HR management. Why?
Because how HR managers handle a new hire’s first few months can be critical to the employee’s longer-term success. Organizations lose 17 percent of new recruits during the first three months of being hired, making this an extremely vulnerable period for talent acquisition.
Moreover, 88 percent of workers say their companies do not do a great job at onboarding new employees. Clearly, this problem needs to be solved.
