Businesses will need to start thinking about how they introduce their hires to the ways they work. For this, putting together an onboarding program for new hires will help them make better decisions in hiring for the right job.

Fremont, CA: If companies want to make great hires and retain them, they need to create better programs for onboarding new employees.

Here are five things companies need to know when putting together their employee onboarding programs.

Standardized Onboarding Programs

Creating a standardized onboarding program will make it easier for new hires to get familiarized with every part of the business. When this process is utilized, companies can run through it more quickly, iterating and streamlining it, leading to more productive hires. Organizations that standardize onboarding new employees see 54 percent higher productivity rates from them.

Software, like ClearCompany's Employee Onboarding Software, has all the tools needed to get new hires ready for work the moment they step foot in the door. It can make the onboarding program entirely paperless, and offer smooth, one-stop checklist accountability to ensure every vital onboarding task is taken care of. The software can even roll out a full-functional onboarding program in days, with the help of their support team guiding every step of the way.

Bad Onboarding Reduces Productivity

Apart from high turnover, companies will also face lower productivity from employees, resulting in lower morale for workers and reduced efficiency. People who are left behind get the extra load of the leftover work, so even if a company can afford the cost of turnover, it is still losing money on lost work.

Onboarding Executives

Onboarding new hires in C-level and other executives is just as important, especially in big companies, because a wrong onboarding program will send these potential hires to a competitor.

Bad Onboarding Drives High Turnover

Bad onboarding programs will only make employees leave their new jobs. To prevent turnover, companies need to analyze how they introduce employees to their work before anything else.
