Over the past decade, many organizations have developed onboarding programs to improve retention, engagement and their overall employee experience.
But a recent study by Gallup has found that most organizations are falling woefully short of the mark. Only 12% of employees strongly agree their organization does a great job of onboarding new employees.
The consequences are significant regrettable turnover within the first year of employment and low engagement among employees who stay. Organizations may have great talent attraction strategies, but they stumble once new employees get in the door.
What’s gone wrong with onboarding? And how do we fix it?
