    Returning to the basics can dramatically reduce new hire turnover

    new hire turnover

    All too often, new hires leave an organization because they felt they never fit in, didn't feel a strong connection with their manager, or believed they were underperforming in their new role. A strong onboarding program can prevent each of these turnover drivers.

    Best of all, strong onboarding programs aren't necessarily time- or resource-intensive. For managers, often the greatest challenge in providing an effective onboarding program is ensuring that a few critical onboarding activities aren't crowded out by urgent—but ultimately less important—daily crises.

    By returning to the basics, managers can target the most important onboarding elements and ensure that those elements are the focus of their program.
