  8. Why Bother with Onboarding?

  9. Why Improve Onboarding? Companies whose leaders focus on building bonds with their employees in first 90 days retain more employees during their initial period and tend to retain them longer overall. —George Bradt, co-author Onboarding: How to Get Your Employees up to Speed in Half the Time

  10. Why Improve Onboarding? Ninety percent of employees make their decision to stay at a company within the first six months. — Aberdeen Group Onboarding Benchmark Report 2006

  11. Why People Leave in the First Few Years Typical voluntary turnover rates for different years of seniority 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 • Concerns around development and career opportunities • Compensation and benefits • Supervision “The Boss Effect” Quit Rate Percent Less than 1 1yr 2 yrs 3 yrs 4 yrs 5yrs 6 yrs 7 yrs 8 yrs 9 yrs 10 yrs 10-15yrs 15+ yrs Length of Service Source: Attrition and Retention Consortium (ARC)

  12. Today’s Changing Workforce In 2016, Millennials became the largest generation in the labor force, which coincided with a significant decrease in the Boomer and Silent/Greatest generations: This trend will continue, with Millennials projected to make up roughly half of the labor force by the year 2020. Sources: Pew Research, Forbes

  13. What the Loss of the Boomers Means for You Institutions risk systematically losing important knowledge and historical context in the following areas… Managers and Supervisors Financial Management and Leadership Information Technology Skilled Trades Legacy Systems and Processes …while recruiting a Millennial generation that is more transient and less developed in a highly competitive labor market

  14. Millennials – “The New Boss” In 2016, Millennials became the largest generation in the labor force, which coincided with a significant decrease in the Boomer and Silent/Greatest generations: Millennials are projected to make up roughly three-fourths of the labor force by the year 2025 with 44% of them being part of a minority or ethnic group Sources: Pew Research, Forbes

  16. Onboarding (vs. Orientation) • Orientation: welcome, policies, benefits, handbooks, mission • Onboarding is a process to welcome, educate and assimilate new employees into an organization over a period of time. • This process builds the foundation for a work environment that promotes performance, productivity, collaboration and a sense of community with an understanding of the institution’s mission and values. It makes employees “sticky” to your institution. 15

  17. Benchmark with Other HR Professionals 16

  18. Consider “Recent Hire” Focus Groups or Survey Key Unanswered Questions: What do you anticipate that employeesat your workplacewish would have happened (or at least been discussed) within their first 30 days? Where do I park? How do I ask for vacation? What happens if I’m late? When do I have to wear my ID? What do I do for lunch? • Think: • Key information • Establishing and provisioning • Socialization to your culture 17

  19. Best Practices for Onboarding • Shared responsibility with HR, department and supervisor • HR support for supervisor checklist • Employee checklist • 6 month employee training plan • Key relationships list • Mentor assigned for 1 – 2 months • Career discussions • Welcome activities in the department • Other ideas we’ve heard: • Assigned Talent Partner from HR • HR ”new hire” pulse survey within 6 months • Self-service, micro-trainings, workflow/automation

  20. Why Use Checklists? The volume and complexity of what we know has exceeded our individual ability to deliver its benefits correctly, safely, or reliably. —Dr. Atul Gawande, author The Checklist Manifesto
