Successful Onboarding Comes Down to Communication and Culture

Published Fri Dec 30 2022


Talented business leaders know that hiring the right people for vacant positions is an extremely arduous, resource-intensive process. You want new employees to stick around for the long haul. Doing so might seem like a roll of the dice, but ensuring your talent remains retained, engaged, and productive starts with quality onboarding. Setting up your new hire for success is key, and the best way to do that is to help them fit into your culture as quickly as possible. Make sure your everyday practices and interactions with your newest employees embody your company values. Two-way communication is also important. Employees who’ve had their roles and responsibilities clearly communicated to them were 23 percent more likely to stay at their organization, and employees who believed they were unable to give feedback to their managers were about 16 percent less likely to stay.
