Why Buddy Programs?

Your organization’s people are what make it great – which is why ensuring they have a fantastic start is essential to retention. After all, 22 percent of staff turnover occurs in the first 45 days of employment according to The Wynhurst Group. Ensuring employees are happy with your organization and happy to stay is a win for both employee and organization. A buddy program, where a new hire is paired with a seasoned employee to informally share knowledge, is an impactful way to increase new hire retention.

Pairing new hires with a buddy helps them navigate their first days, months and beyond at your company. With a buddy program, new hires can:

  • Cultivate workplace relationships and increase engagement
  • Speed time to productivity
  • Acclimate themselves to the company’s culture

56% of new hires say they want a buddy or mentor.End Quote
