Onboarding Plan: Don’t Lose New Hires

Onboarding Plan

Onboarding a new hire, now what? You need an Onboarding Plan.

Company policies, desk, computer, phone, email address, show them the lunchroom, done. Right? Sure, if you want the thousands you’ve invested in getting to this stage only to invest tens of thousands more. Meanwhile, they start planning their exit strategy within 6 months. That’s right, 6 months; the average time an improperly onboarded employee starts making a break for it.

We Have a Plan, Do You?

Forget the money, what about your companies productivity? You hire people to keep it up, so why not make the process bulletproof. How? Gamify. That’s right, gamify. It’s not just a trendy concept, it’s real.

“Gamification of any type of training increases engagement – and onboarding gamification is no different. Using onboarding gamification to help onboard new hires into a sales team is a great way to welcome an employee to their new job.” – elearningindustry.com –

Here are the Facts

In fact, according to a jarring 2018 Gallop report, only 12% of employees “strongly agree” their company does a great job onboarding.

Vanita BellenTrue North Coaching and Consulting suggests implementing Mobile Enabled Learning:

“Onboarding will incorporate touch points with new employees that are enabled by mobile technology. Information will be delivered by this means, as well as real-time measurement of the new employee’s engagement. Microlearning, a way of delivering content in small bursts, is one of the best learning methods for adults and will be used to teach job-related skills and help with integration.”

When is a Good Time for Team Building?

When to have a team building event?

When indeed! It’s important to get your team together and have fun, do something out of the ordinary and on a regular basis.

The link article below is great. I always find events like “Improv Team Building” or an “Amazing Race” can be highly effective. You take a learned experience, while having fun together (#5 in the article) back to the office that benefits the cohesion within your work environment boosting morale which in turn will boost productivity.

Are You Rewarding Hard Work?

Including time for fun in the workplace is often cited as leading technique for employee satisfaction and retention.

As Dan Tynan states in his article on rewarding employees making the workplace fun is #3:

Make work fun. “During a business coaching engagement, I found employee morale to be way down,” said Terri Levine, president of The Coaching Institute. “We created a weekly event to boost morale. One week we asked everyone to bring in a baby picture, post it on a wall, then pick which person matched each picture. Everyone was having fun and socializing while productivity went from 58 percent to 72 percent — all in the same week.”

This is where a well organized event can make all the difference, whether it is more a team building, in house session such as a Improv Comedy Team Building Technique session or a full-out entertainment extravaganza such as a Murder Mystery Dinner Cruise, you can make a difference by rewarding your employees.
