Employee Onboarding: Reduce employee turnover.

Improve Your Employee Onboarding Strategy

Are employees jumping ship?

It’s believed that up to 90% of employees solidify a decision to leave a company within their first six months of employment (Bauer, T. N., 2010). That’s enough to make any employer give serious thought to implementing a strong employee onboarding strategy.

Effective employee onboarding programs are time consuming. But recruiting new employees to replace the ones you’ll lose (if you don’t orient them in a meaningful way) is not just time consuming, but substantially more expensive. In fact, statistics show that the cost of replacing an employee can amount to almost three times his or her salary.

The creation of a standardized employee onboarding strategy that incorporates tactical administrative support, strategic socialization, and training can set your employees up to be more engaged and productive – and can result in better retention (Aberdeen, 2010).
