Employee OnboardingVs Orientation - Why You Need Both

Add this event to your calendar: iCal   Google Calendar



Is your hiring and on boarding process costing you unnecessarily? Did you know….

Nearly 1/3 of people are job searching within six months of employment

Almost 1/3 of externally hired executives miss expectations in the first two years

With 10-15% annual attrition, companies lose about 60% of their entire talent base within four years.

Introducing an onboarding program in to your hiring process can mean the difference between retaining top employees and watching them walk out the door after several months. Companies that implement an effective onboarding program during the first three months of the new hire employment experience will have 31% less turnover than those who don’t according to the Aberdeen Group. 

If you’re like most good organizations, you’re doing something more. The Aberdeen Group reported that 70 percent of all organizations currently deploy some sort of onboarding program with leaders entering new roles. While this is a good thing, there is great variability in the focus, depth and length of these programs. The most superficial tend to provide surface-level “meet and greets” and focus on initial paperwork and process knowledge. Others go deeper, focusing on helping leaders learn to navigate the organization’s culture and understand the informal organization and key players. 

What does yours do? And do you even have an onboarding program?


You have made your decision about whom to hire.  You’ve gotten them excited about their new job. You’re excited about what they can bring to your team. Now what?

Onboarding is important because it introduces the employee to the company’s culture and expectations as well as your department’s culture and expectations. In addition, it gives the employee the vital training and information needed to succeed in their new position. 

An onboarding program isn’t just a routine checklist; it should be a comprehensive process that makes the new employee as well as the manager confident they made the right choice and confident they can succeed in their new job. 

Also, a new hire’s compatibility or culture fit will likely be determined during the onboarding process. This can save the company and the manager from a prolonged investment into the wrong person.
