According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), employee turnover can be as much as 50 percent in the first 18 months of employment. Another study revealed that 33 percent of new hires look for a new job within their first six months and 23 percent of them don’t make it to the first anniversary.
Onboarding is one of the foundational and critical building blocks of hiring success, and sets the tone for your employee’s relationship with their new organization. In this guide we examine the importance of strong employee onboarding and why an intranet is a pivotal tool for facilitating onboarding and ramping up productivity. We also provide you with a list of everything to add to an onboarding portal, and how to measure the success of your onboarding program.
Your intranet can be used to create an engaging and informative source of information. Add calendar invites, an organizational directory, and opportunities to electronically submit HR forms.
Collecting feedback along the way will help you measure the success of your onboarding program. Leveraging surveys and analytics will deliver critical insight into your onboarding program.
All intranets should humanize the onboarding experience as much as possible and keep it fun! Your people are your greatest asset, so use this time to make them feel as welcome as possible!
