Onboarding is a crucial program for any organization on a number of levels; retention, culture, and productivity being at the top of the list. It’s a huge opportunity to bring on new team members with the right mindset from the very beginning, and provide them with the resources, team support, and company values they’ll carry with them in their career at your company, not to mention boost longevity and retention of your workforce. In fact, 69% of employees are more likely to stay with a company for three years if they experienced great onboarding. But it’s not such an easy feat, even outside the context of a pandemic, and very few organizations are able to create a great, engaging onboarding experience.
