Why are leading organizations investing so heavily in onboarding? A recent article from Harvard Business Review highlights research showing that companies with successful onboarding programs are not only more likely to retain their new hires, but are also more likely to report measurable profit growth. One study found that “on average, companies lose 17% of their new hires during the first three months.” The article looks at the onboarding processes used by Google, Zappos, and Twitter, and along with this recent Fast Company article detailing the first few weeks of new MailChimp hires, highlights how significant the social component to onboarding is for a new hire’s success. The research found that along with support from their direct manager, new employees were more successful when they felt “socially accepted” and “more connected to others in the organization.” [Shameless plug: making the onboarding process more effective and socially interactive is one of the most common use cases for Practice.]
