How do you measure the impact and success of your staff’s induction experience?
When so much time and money goes into recruitment and training of new staff, you simply can’t afford to leave the success of your staff onboarding activities to chance.
Indeed a survey of 610 CEOs by Harvard Business School estimates that typical mid-level managers require 6.2 months to reach their break-even point, according to the Studer Group. In other words, estimations show that mid-level positions will require more than 6 months in the role to recoup the initial hiring investment.
Enter ‘Onboarding’ Surveys
New Starter or ‘Onboarding’ Surveys are used by organisations to draw out feedback from newly hired employees, or internal transfers who are starting a new role. The survey covers topics such as the interview and recruitment process, the initial induction, the quality of training provided, and the employee’s general impression of their first 90 days in their new role.
With many organisations already running exit surveys, onboarding surveys help deliver a balanced approach to collecting staff feedback. They ensure that the initial stages of an employee’s experience and tenure with your organisation are treated with equal importance as feedback from employees that have already resigned.
An unmistakable financial return
Putting an onboarding feedback system in place to capture early warning signals of any potential problems, and importantly giving you enough time to do something about it before that person decided to prematurely depart, helps to reduce unwanted staff turnover and curbs high staff replacement costs.
It’s good to consider how much you might save if you were able to reduce new starter turnover by even 2-3%, given the total cost of staff turnover is widely accepted to be between 1 to 1.5 of an employee’s salary.
Our onboarding survey solution helps you to:
- Ensure that a “good hire” becomes a “good employee.”
- Limit avoidable or premature staff turnover.
- Identify which recruitment sources produce the best and most suitable candidates to help you channel your recruitment advertising activities into this area.
- Reduce productivity and team stability issues that can result from not talking to (or listening) to frustrated new hires.
- Identify any areas where new staff do not understand their role or duties and use this information to provide relevant targeted training to ensure they stay on track.
- Help management to understand the success of the existing new hire induction and training program, and proactively canvass opportunities to improve it.
