Employee engagement isn’t just a trending topic in HR, it’s proven to have a significant impact on operations and employee retention. Studies have shown that positive employee engagement affects productivity by as much as 17%, and profitability by as much as 21%. Companies are recognizing this and implementing technology with features and services that bolster engagement, starting with onboarding software.
The demand for companies to retain top talent is escalating. And, yet, companies often spend very little time in onboarding new hires. In a recently published survey of HR managers by job site CareerBuilder, 16% said poor or non-existent onboarding lowers their company’s productivity, 14% said it brings on greater inefficiencies, and 12% said it leads to higher employee turnover. Another report by the Harvard Business Review notes that 32% of global executives rate the employee onboarding they experienced as poor and replacing each failed executive can cost a business up to 213% of his or her salary.
Modern businesses are driven by analytics and the right course of action is often determined by the data and statistics available. Human resources is no different.
