Starting New Hires Off on the Right Foot: Why Onboarding is Important

Presented by: Julia Szenberg, HR Specialist - Talent Programs & David Zajchowski, Assistant Director HR - Talent Programs
Date & Time: March 22, 2017 (12:30pm - 1:30pm)
Location: Crummer - Room 220

Session Summary: Congratulations! Now that you have selected the best candidate, successful onboarding is a great opportunity to make a continued positive impression and to introduce your new employee to the wonderful traditions, history, and culture of the Rollins community. Why is onboarding so important?

  • Up to 20% of employee turnover happens in the first 45 days (source)
  • The organizational costs of employee turnover are estimated to range between 100% and 300% of the replaced employee’s salary (source)
  • 60% of companies fail to set milestones or goals for new hires (source)
  • It typically takes eight months for a newly hired employee to reach full productivity (source)

An excellent onboarding process takes time and includes more than just new hire paperwork, initial orientation and welcome to the team. Onboarding should be designed as an ongoing process involving continuous feedback and dialogue. Effective onboarding will result in job performance and satisfaction, organizational commitment, and retention. Come learn how you can be a part of starting new hires off on the right foot!
