Handy tips for sustainable onboarding

The first impression an employee has about an organisation is crucial. Employees make up their minds to stay or quit working for an organisation within their first year with the company, according to a report from the Aberdeen Group. Furthermore, research from The Wynhurst Group shows that about 4 percent of employees quit on their first day at work. It is not surprising that employee onboarding is being viewed more seriously than ever before.

How to achieve onboarding success

We all know how important first impressions are for a business. A bad first impression can make or break a long-term profitable relationship with a customer. Say they continue to be your customer after that bad first impression, you know that they will probably be very reluctant to refer people to you or tell their family and friends anything positive about doing business with you. It is basic marketing 101, your first impression to the customer is gold and you only get one time to make a first impression.

What is the ROI of Onboarding?

Onboarding is a crucial time to steer the employee experience in a rewarding direction. As with many employee experiences that fall under the responsibility of HR, the potential financial upsides might not be obvious, but they are present.
