Engaging Employees ThroughBetter Onboarding

Monday, November 12th, 2018

Start employees off on the right foot with a streamlined onboarding process.

The interview process can be challenging for many candidates. From the application process and pre-screening phone interviews to the anxiety of answering questions from a panel of strangers, landing a new job is a stress-inducing activity. After the job offer is accepted, the onboarding process officially begins. This is a critical time for both the employee and the employer because this timeframe marks the beginning of the employee-employer relationship.

New employees often arrive on their first day at a new job feeling a bit nervous and unsure of what to expect. If the employee has a difficult time adjusting to the new position or the onboarding process is not a welcoming experience, the organization risks creating a level of disengagement from the very beginning. Utilizing an onboarding survey can minimize this risk and provide the information organizations need to reduce turnover, retain and attract top talent, and create an engaged workforce.

Starting a new job is often stressful.

Many organizations neglect the fact that with the presence of social media comes increased accountability to employees. From the onboarding perspective, candidates can turn to websites such as Glassdoor to leave a review of the company including information regarding the interview/onboarding process, salary, and general work environment. If an organization is struggling with the onboarding process, Glassdoor reviews can shed some light on what employees think. However, there is an easier way to collect feedback from employees. EngagedMetrics can partner with you to streamline your employee processes through onboarding surveys and other workplace assessment tools designed to foster a culture that welcomes new ideas and motivates employees to perform at their best.
