Create a structured onboarding workflow to ensure success
Too often, new-hires thrown into roles with very little onboarding and training to ensure their success. It's no wonder that almost 30% of new-hires leave within 6 months—a terrible ROI on recruiting costs.
Improve your ROI on recruiting costs by creating an onboarding workflow. You can begin with a simple 5-day workflow to track a new-hire's progress as they receive the training and education they need. As you mature, build out a 30, 60, or even 90-day onboarding workflow, as recommended by leading HR professionals.Edit
Clearly identify their roles, responsibilities, and deliverables
For a new-hire, a key ingredient to integrating successfully is having a clear understanding of their roles, responsibilities and deliverables. Unfortunately, most teams lack clearly defined roles resulting in confusion about who needs to do what. As a result, new-hires learn through trial-and-error—a highly inefficient onboarding process.
Eliminate confusion for your new-hires by clearly identifying everyone’s roles and responsibilities and, most importantly, the order of operations.Edit
Document the task details and instructions
Details are critical to success, but too often, it's the details that are lost during knowledge transfer. This is why it can take up to 8 months for new-hires to reach the same productivity level as existing employees, due to poor and incomplete knowledge transfers.
Eliminate the inefficiency by adding the details and instructions with the workflow. That way, the details are never forgotten and can serve as a reference for future onboarding.Edit
