Episode 6: The Employee Onboarding Special Edition
The topic of BB4G TV this week is Employee Onboarding. Here are some stats you may not be aware of:
- 4% of new hires leave a job after a disastrous first day
- 22% of turnover occurs within the first 45 days.
- 23% of new starters who receive poor onboarding experience leave in the first year.
- And the real cost of that turnover can be as high as 3 times the employee's salary
Host Brenda Thomson asked HR specialist Catie Paterson from Catie Paterson HR, Workplace process architect Kerry Anne Nelson from Operation Verve and IT support specialist Damien Battersby from Proactive IT solutions for their insights on effective onboarding.
