Did you know that 22% of employee turnover happens within the first 45 days of employment?
Most companies still make the mistake of expecting employees to get “up to speed” within the first week or two, but the onboarding process needs to be much longer than that. It takes a long time to adjust to a new environment, learn the ins and outs, the different tools and processes, etc.
It’s amazing how little time and energy is put into onboarding at most companies when you consider how much time and energy is put into recruiting. Think of the money and time spent creating job descriptions, promoting them, contacting hundreds of people on Linkedin, and doing multiple interviews.
