Employee Onboarding

Hiring Employees? Here are 5 Onboarding Statistics for You

Onboarding should not just stop at new employee orientation, but should continue throughout the time an employee starts to feel comfortable in their role. New employees are most excited about their jobs during the first week, and this excitement decreases over time without effective onboarding activities. Onboarding should be a continuous process that starts when you list a vacancy till the time the employee starts to feel comfortable. 

Here are 5 onboarding statistics you must know as an employer:

Bad Hires Are A Reality: Accoriding to Brandon Hall Group’s 2015 Talent Acquisition Study, 95% of the organizations admit to making bad hiring decisions. These hires obviously cost companies thousands of dollars and other resources. The report also suggests that organizations that invest in employee experience can improve hire quality by 70%. Also, employee branding results in 3 times better hires.

Bad eNPS Scores = Bad Onboarding Experience:  Wixstatic survey gives important insights on how new hires respond and react in their new workplaces. People who did not have positive hiring experience are 2X more likely to seek a different job. 1 in 5 new hires unlikely to recommend the company to friends and family. 22% hires find onboarding process and systems not user friendly.

First Day is a Difficult Day: Make Hires Comfortable: Gallup in one of its report states that only 29% of the new hires feel comfortable in their new roles post onboarding experience. Also, 1 in 5 employees report their onboarding experience as poor or that they received no onboarding at all. 70% of employees who had good onboarding experience are 2.6  times more likely to stay.

50+ Tasks to be Completed During Onboarding: Onboarding is a time consuming process for employees too. Saplinghr says the average new hire onboarding experience consists of 54 activities that includes signing of 3 documents, 41 administrative tasks etc. 

Post Pandemic Onboarding is WFH Focused: 71.1% say remote work and distributed teams will be a major paradigm shift moving forward with Remote hiring, onboarding, and training are cited as major challenges in filling job positions.
