The Secret to Effective Onboarding It Takes Longer Than You Think
While onboarding processes vary from business to business and even between industries, there are several general guidelines that can help improve employee engagement, retention, and the success of onboarding.
A standardized onboarding process increases new hire retention by at least 50%. And when a business provides a great onboarding experience, 69% of employees are more likely to stay for at least three years. But despite the benefits of an employee-focused onboarding process, many businesses fail to deliver a good experience. Most new hires expect to complete more than 50 tasks in their onboarding process—with a focus on new hire paperwork and administrative hurdles. This aligns with what 58% of organizations report—their onboarding programs are focused on processes and paperwork. And the length of most onboarding programs? Only 37% of businesses say their programs last for more than 30 days.
Developing an effective onboarding strategy and onboarding timeline takes time and effort. But retaining new hires and high-performing employees on your team is worth it. Read on to learn how long onboarding should take and ten tips for making it count.
