Quality candidates have options, but after a persuasive recruiting process and offer letter, they chose your company. And they’re pumped!
What happens if you throw on the brakes and don’t immediately start the onboarding process after the offer letter?
New hires become unsure. They begin to question their new role and things said during the interview. Some become disenchanted, worried about their decision. Some don’t even show up for their first day. Indeed found that a shocking 22% of new hires signed the paperwork but then ghosted.
Onboarding is so much more than just paperwork.
Onboarding is THE opportunity to make new hires feel amazing about joining your company.
World-class onboarding starts the moment your new hire says YES and continues well into their first 90 days and beyond. Click Boarding’s clients have shared countless stories of onboarding success – and each of them hinge on well-designed onboarding program that adheres to onboarding best practices.
