New hires are not often provided with the training and networking they need to become productive employees. Poor employee onboarding results in productivity loss and more employee turnover, negatively impacting the bottom line.
Successful onboarding, on the other hand, can increase an employee's discretionary effort by more than 20% and drive employee performance by up to 15%. Furthermore, committed employees work 57% harder and are nine times less likely to leave.
The Gartner Employee Onboarding Checklist includes guidance around:
- How to streamline the onboarding experience
- Actions the new employee should take during the first few days on the new job
- The hiring manager's role before and after the new employee starts
- Activities each team member who will be working with the new team member should plan for
Leverage this tool, critical for human resources and team leaders to use during the new-hire onboarding process, to increase performance and employee engagement.
