Have you decided on the amount of time you want to invest in new-hire on-boarding/orientation? How important do you view building relationships within the organization and helping new employees feel invested in their work? Training and on-boarding prepare employees for their jobs, without it, chances are new hires will not make it past the first few months. On-boarding and training are the two terms that are often used interchangeably, leaving room for misconception of what is really wrong with a new hire's first 90 days on the job.
There are many things that you can do to ensure that your new employees are rightly oriented in their new work environment. Managers/supervisors need to see that everyone joining their department feel accepted, secure and important. All employees must make an effort to get the new people start with a good note, and it is an ongoing process. You need to be committed to it, whatever it takes and you will observe that, the time and money you invest in your new employees will directly impact your bottom line and pay dividends for years to come. Research indicates that simply improving new employee orientation can increase retention rates by as much as 25%.
Probably the most important contribution any HR professional or hiring manager can make for long-term success is a successful orientation program. If you do it right, it will drive and increase your productivity, show positive results, and improve the rates of retention. These are one of the most important 'teachable moments' your organization will ever have.
