Onboarding – Keeping Your New Hires Happy!

First impressions are everything. Your company’s onboarding process is your chance to make an exceptional first impression with your new hires. Is your program up to par or can Royal Recognition help you improve?

Onboarding is the process of getting new hires adjusted to the social and performance aspects of their new jobs. Creating a vision of the organization and setting expectations for your new employee are keys to successful onboarding. The Society for Human Resources Management reported that 1 in 25 employees leave their new jobs because of bad onboarding experiences.

When creating your program remember that both the “big” things and the “little” things matter. Is your employee greeted enthusiastically on their first day? Is their workstation setup? Does someone take them to lunch on their first day? Remember their most important day is the first day.

Here are some tips for improving your onboarding process:

  • Have a fun welcome box at your employees work station – include fun branded items, some sweet treats and more. Visit https://bit.ly/2AKQqNk for 900,000+ promotional items.
  • Plan a team lunch
  • Tour the office
  • Assign a mentor
  • Discuss office policies and procedures

Remember that having an onboarding program not only helps the new hire process run smoother but it also helps your company retain top talent.
