So why isn’t this more of an issue? Easy. There’s a disconnect. New hires see onboarding as an integration into the company and culture, and organizations see it as data and required forms.
“Many companies focus so much on information-sharing during an onboarding process that they may overlook basic practical needs, such as making sure that a workstation is up and running for the employee…” – Robert Hosking, executive director of OfficeTeam
Don’t be that organization. Onboarding is so much more than just filling out forms. It’s a chance to connect and engage with your new employee, reduce their anxiety, and prove that coming into your organization was the right decision. It’s a chance to develop a lasting relationship that will – hopefully – push the company and the employee to bigger and better things. By focusing on the employee experience – businesses can see improvements in customer satisfaction, increased retention rates, stronger employer brands, decreased costs, and growth in company revenue.
