The Key Challenges of Onboarding
The first 30 days of a new employee are crucial. The employee already has a positive impression of your organisation, given that 80% of candidates form their impression about a company based on the interview experience given by the company.
However, many businesses fail to capitalise on this, with only around 12% of employees finding that their organization did a good job of onboarding them onto their new work environment.
This lack of efficiency also negatively impacts the organisation’s attractiveness, given that a mere 1 in 5 new employees state that they are unlikely to recommend the company to a friend or family member after the onboarding experience.
But why does this happen? The team at Brightspark believe that there are several key challenges that come in the way of a business’ ability to properly onboard. Here are some of them!
Overall, a paperwork-heavy onboarding process may negatively impact the impressions of the new employee, while also adding further workload to the already-busy HR staff tasked with handling the vast quantities of paperwork.
