Employer's Guide to Better Onboarding


The onboarding process should span the new employee’s first three months, and should even start before the employee’s first day. It’s important to develop a comprehensive plan for this process, and what’s expected at each stage. The costs of improper employee onboarding are staggering, but sticking to solid practices pays off in a big way. It does take discipline to create a thorough plan and see it through. When you put in the effort, though, you’ll develop engaged employees who are committed to your company’s success.

If you’re feeling daunted about creating an employee onboarding program for your company or department, a professional employer organization like Staff Leasing can help you develop a detailed plan that creates better outcomes for new hires. Contact our team.
