How a Good New Employee Orientation Program Improves Retention, Productivity & Profitability!

Whether you call it Onboarding, Induction, Enculturation, or New Employee Orientation (NEO), the process used to welcome, train, and engage your new employees while capturing their excitement of a new job and reducing their new job jitters, is critical to their success. NEO is not a one day event, but rather a process that begins after their acceptance of the job and extends through the first year of their employment.

Some of the recent studies indicate that the three things that new arrivals are primarily concerned about are-my boss, my job and my coworkers. It is a high priority to deal with the uncertainties and jitters of the new employees during the orientation program. It depends on the employee orientation as to how long the new arrivals go through this mental depression. It has been estimated that about 50% to 60% of new hires leave their jobs within seven months of being employed. Don't let this happen in your organization.

By 45 days after a new employee begins their job, 20% quit! By 7 months, 50% have quit. Forty six percent of new hires fail within 18 months, and only 19% achieve success. The exodus of these new hires costs the employer approximately 20% of each employee's salary. Considering the percentage of employees who never engage with their new job - the costs are enormous. If those employees were engaged, research shows that the stock value will have higher earnings per share, and the business will experience 22 percent higher profitability, 21 percent higher productivity, 10 percent higher customer engagement, 25 percent to 65 percent lower turnover, 37 percent lower absenteeism, 28 percent lower shrinkage (theft), and 48 percent fewer staff safety incidents.

Attend this session by our expert speaker Dr. Susan Strauss to assess, design, develop, implement and evaluate your organization and department's NEO strategy and see your new employees' productivity go through the roof - cut down employee turnover, increase productivity and profitability.
