So, you just signed your dream talent (yay!) and now comes the step that could, but shouldn't happen: the dreaded onboarding mistakes. You can understand a lot about a company by the way they onboard their new employees. Onboarding is not just about showcasing your company culture , it is actually one of the critical steps that creates culture.
Get it wrong and your new employees will probably feel less engaged, take longer to feel comfortable in their new role and leave sooner. But, if you get it right it’s ✨magic ✨. Your new recruit will feel better about the company, step up to full productivity faster, understand and align with the company goals and stay longer.
Onboarding is a critical process within HR and it determines whether you will give a great employee experience and drive a successful company or not. Data shows that 15% of new talents quit within the first six months When asked what the main reason was, it was the lack of good onboarding.
Grab a coffee, keep on reading and we will give you examples on onboarding mistakes companies do and how you can avoid them.
Think back to your first day at a previous job (or your current one). Did you show up only to find out that your workstation hadn’t been set up? Or that the software and tools you need were missing?
