Why Extended Onboarding?

When it comes to successfully onboarding new employees, traditional orientation just isn’t enough to adequately engage new hires and get them off to a fast start. Organizations with a weak onboarding process translate into slow time to productivity and attrition for their new hires. In fact, in organizations without formal onboarding a full third of external hires are no longer with their organization after two years1. To address this, many organizations are turning to extended onboarding, which is a continued employee learning program over a window of time integrated with on-the-job experiences to provide maximum learning impact.

With extended onboarding in place, you’ll ensure your new hires:

  • Achieve productivity quicker
  • Stay at your organization longer
  • Gain deeper job-related knowledge to perform better

Effective onboarding can shorten the time it takes for the average employee to achieve expected productivity levels.End Quote
