Onboarding Secrets That Will Make Your Employees Stay


Watch this 2-minute video.

Onboarding is the process of welcoming and integrating new employees into your company. It is a critical first impression, and it can set the tone for the employee's entire experience at your company. A well-designed onboarding experience can help new employees get up to speed quickly, feel welcome and supported, and become productive members of your team.

Here are some tips for creating an onboarding experience that will make your employees stay:

1. Pre-board your new hires

Don't wait until the employee's first day to start onboarding. You can start pre-boarding them as soon as they accept your job offer. Send them a welcome email with information about your company, their role, and what to expect on their first day. You can also send them links to your employee handbook, company blog, and social media pages.

2. Make their first day special

On the employee's first day, take the time to give them a tour of the office, introduce them to their team members, and set them up with the tools and resources they need to be successful. You can also give them a welcome gift, such as a company-branded coffee mug or t-shirt.

3. Provide clear expectations and goals

Make sure that the new employee understands their role, their responsibilities, and how their work fits into the company's overall goals. Set clear expectations for their performance and provide them with regular feedback.

4. Offer training and development opportunities

New employees need to learn a lot about your company and their role in order to be successful. Provide them with training and development opportunities to help them get up to speed quickly and learn the skills they need to be successful.

5. Build relationships

Help new employees feel welcome and supported by building relationships with their team members and managers. Encourage them to ask questions and seek help when they need it.

6. Get feedback

Ask new employees for feedback on their onboarding experience. This feedback can help you to identify areas where you can improve your onboarding process.

By following these tips, you can create an onboarding experience that will make your new employees feel welcome, supported, and motivated to succeed.
