How to Find and Keep Talented Employees
Think about the last time you added a new member to your company. Were his or her services so desperately needed that there was no time to properly integrate them into the company? Was their initiation into your company a trial by fire?
Over the past few years, many businesses have reduced their staffs via layoffs and/or have not replaced workers who have retired or quit. As these businesses start to staff back
up to handle increased volume, they tend to skimp on new employee orientation and the concept of onboarding, which is the link between the last stage of recruitment and the first step toward retention of an employee. After all, employee turnover is costly and statistics show that workers are the most likely to leave during the first six to 12 months of employment than at any other time in their tenure with a company. One major key to employee retention is effective onboarding. Businesses should offer their team members a booster shot of enthusiasm and vision for the mission and purpose of the company periodically and regularly.
