Take Action

Companies want their new hires to be able to ramp up and be productive as quickly as possible. To get started the right way, employees must understand – from day 1 – their role in achieving company’s goals.

Develop a systematic approach to onboarding, communication and training to cut these rising turnover costs.


Onboard employees well so they understand both what’s expected of them and that they’re an important part of the team.


Keep open conversation going to redirect employees that may have started down the wrong path. Reinforce company goals, values & expectations often.


Provide ongoing training for an opportunity to grow.



Organizations with a strong on-boarding process improve new hire retention by 82% and productivity by over 70%. Companies with weak on boarding programs lose the confidence of their candidates and are more likely to lose these individuals in the first year. (source)

This systematic approach protects you from lawsuits and penalties as well.
