Society for Human Resource Management research shows roughly 1 in 25 people leave a job because of a poor onboarding program.
According to Talya Bauer, a professor of management at Portland State University, there are four distinct essential components of any formal onboarding efforts:
- Compliance: Teaches employees basic legal and policy-related rules.
- Clarification: Provides role-specific clarity to assure they understand their new job.
- Culture: Gives employees training in both formal and informal norms.
- Connection: Helps new employees establish personal relationships and “information networks” that will help them succeed.
