A well-executed onboarding process means more than getting new hires onto the payroll. It can make the difference between a new employee becoming a productive team member or a voluntary early departure.
An employee’s early experience often determines whether they will successfully integrate into an organization’s culture over time. After just one week, one third of new employees have decided whether they want to stay with a company for the long-term. After a month, 63% have decided. In today’s candidate-driven job market, employees are confident enough to leave companies that don’t feel like the right “fit.”
Engaging employees from their first day on the job is no longer an afterthought in HR departments. In 2015, 87% of business and HR leaders said that employee engagement was “important” or “very important” to their organization, a significant increase from the year before. Yet fewer than half of HR executives say they know how to increase engagement.
Top HR executives will join scientists leading the revolution in human motivation research at the Employee Engagement Conference, hosted by the Human Capital Institute July 24-26 in San Francisco. Avature will be present at the conference to offer live demos and talk about how Avature’s solutions can enable strategic HR initiatives from onboarding to ongoing social engagement.
