Managers are often so busy trying to recruit talented workers that they neglect to think about what should happen once the new hire arrives ready to work.
Without an onboarding program, the first days, weeks, and even months of the highly coveted new employee can be very chaotic. Research has shown that in 4% of cases a bad first working day is the main reason for leaving the organisation. Your first week at a company has a big impact on how you feel about the organisation. It’s the foundation of your experience, capacity and emotional connection at work.
