#RedBranchWeekly: Day One & Beyond: Onboarding for Retention

By Alison Wurth:

If you’re overwhelmed with all the intricacies of recruiting, hiring, onboarding, employee retention and so on, rest easy. You are not alone. We’re always looking for the new secret ingredient to having a happy, productive workforce. Turns out – it’s a long, ongoing process. But if you are not onboarding for retention, odds are the position you just filled is about to be open again shortly.

Starting a new employee out on the right foot is the best first step to a great retention rate. If a new employee doesn’t feel connected with the team, their contributions toward company initiatives will be minimal and they could become part of the third of new hires that leave within the first 6 months. This starts on day one. Thankfully, our partners at ClearCompany, Inspire Software and IQTalent Partners have spilled their knowledge on wowing candidates with seamless onboarding and a reason to stick around.
