Only 12% of Employees Like Their Company's Onboarding Program!
It’s never been easier to find a job or harder to keep top talent.
According to Gallup’s 2017 State of the Workplace study:
- 42% of employees feel it’s a good time to look for work, compared to only 19% in 2012
- 51% of employees are actively watching for job opportunities
- 35% of people have changed jobs within the last three years, and 91% of employees left their company to do so
Couple these stats with Bersin by Deloitte’s recent research showing 14% of new employees leave within the first 12 months and your recruiting dollars, turnover costs and training investment start piling up. Not to mention the impact it has on customers, other employees and overall business performance.
So how do you create a workplace new employees want to be a part of – long term?
It starts with the initial impression candidates have of your organization from the recruiters, to the interviewers in the hiring process and most importantly to the employee experience during the first 12 months on the job. According to Gallup, only 12% of employees feel their organization does a great job of onboarding.
