The first impression an employee has about an organisation is crucial. Employees make up their minds to stay or quit working for an organisation within their first year with the company, according to a report from the Aberdeen Group. Furthermore, research from The Wynhurst Group shows that about 4 percent of employees quit on their first day at work. It is not surprising that employee onboarding is being viewed more seriously than ever before.
The employee onboarding process is no longer used just for administrative issues. It’s true that advanced software and automated technologies eliminate duplicate entries and streamline employee onboarding, but that’s just the beginning of the array of business and employee benefits that onboarding technology can deliver for your business or HR department.
