Onboarding is the process of integrating a new hire into the organization and familiarizing him or her with the work environment. Through this administrative process, the new employee acquires the required skills, knowledge, tools, and attitudes to effectively contribute and make a difference to the organization.
Why is Onboarding Useful?
An effective onboarding process helps with better employee job performance and organizational commitment. With the help of Zoho HR software, you can streamline HR processes, including onboarding, attendance management, time tracking, and appraisals. Zoho People integration has pre-designed flows for both employees and candidates, allowing you to smoothly complete the onboarding process.
Here are some of the many benefits of onboarding employees more strategically:
1. Enhanced employee engagement
When you onboard employees in the right way, they feel more connected to your organization. They have a better understanding of the company’s mission, vision, and values. An effective onboarding software sends out all the essential information about policies to the employees, making it easier for them to get a grip of the company’s culture. As a result, employees feel more engaged. Engaged employees tend to go the extra mile in work, improving productivity and profitability.
2. Better employee retention
Many organizations focus on employee retention. This is because employee turnover is expensive. A strong onboarding process can help to improve employee retention. Employee pre-boarding starts as soon as an offer letter is signed. Use welcome emails to kickstart the recruitment process and give employees a smooth transition from candidate to a new hire. Don’t let paperwork ruin your employee’s first day.
3. Improved talent attraction
If you have an engaging and smooth onboarding program, your employees will enjoy a stellar experience. This will not only help you retain talent but also reach out to stronger candidates. After enjoying a world-class onboarding experience, employees are likely to share their opinions publicly and also recommend your organization to friends and family.
