Employee Onboarding is the process of introducing a new employee into a company and helping them understand overall objectives of the organization. During Employee Onboarding, the new employee will learn about company goals and expectations, as well as see the workspace, meet existing employees, and experience some of the culture. While first day paperwork is important, employee onboarding focuses more on acclimating the new employee into their new work environment with the goal to provide them a sense of direction and belonging. This is also when the employee can review a written, comprehensive outline of job responsibilities and expectations.
Companies lose about 25% of new employees within their first year due to bad employee onboarding. ApplicantPro offers onboarding options that will cover everything you need from your new hire including reference checks, online new hire paperwork, offer letters, eVerify capabilities, and collecting information that may award you tax credits.
