5 Tips for Onboarding New Employees (that make them want to stay!)

How much time and effort are you really investing in onboarding new employees?

For anyone who’s had someone leave after less than a year, you’ll know it’s much more than just the salary itself.

This video is for those who want to set new employees up for success. For those who know that successful hiring is all about having a successful team.

When it comes to recruitment, don’t make the mistake of thinking the hiring process wraps up with an employee’s first day on the job. Being intentional with your onboarding can make a massive difference in the success of your new hire. The first few days (and weeks) of an employee’s adventure at your organization has a significant impact on their happiness and productivity. Ultimately, how you welcome them will determine the most important part of the candidate experience and sets the tone for success or failure.

And as a special treat, the best part of this video is you don’t have to listen to me (too much, anyway!) I’ve recruited some top talent to help us understand the critical need for an onboarding experience that considers employee experience as much as it does the positive outcomes for the business. Melina Gillies, CHRL, MAHRI is our in-house certified HR pro who is a font of valuable information on making the employee experience the best it can be for the good of the organization (even if she is a little camera-shy).
