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.
