Not only of your company but how you value, and invest your time in, your recruiters. A true onboarding experience engages employees, creating recruiters that are committed to your company’s success. Therefore, onboarding is vital to retention.
Therefore, it helps retain new hires by making them feel like their contribution, growth and development is as important to you, as it is to the recruiter.
With the market being so busy it’s easy to hire an experienced recruiter and let them crack on, after all the recruiters will be keen to do this and prove their worth.
Harvard Business Review
If you want your hire to be a long-term successful achiever within the business, it’s important to take the time to onboard them to the business. Because onboarding is vital to retention.
I hear regularly from recruiters that want to leave a business after 6 months as they were thrown in at the deep end so 6 months later their managers have high expectations, and they still haven’t managed the basics of using the CRM or know the companies’ expectations.
With on boarding being partly or completely remote this adds extra stress to the recruiters successful landing in your business.
Clearly defined objectives through the on-boarding process sets out the standards of what you are looking from the recruiter.
The quality of the onboarding experience influences and sets the benchmark for the recruiters’ immediate and long-term success in a role.
True onboarding is a socialisation process and an experience designed to integrate a recruiter into an organisation for the long-term. And it starts with culture. A structured onboarding process will foster engagement, build relationships and emotional connections, and create loyalty.
This is the time that you can set out your expectations, values, and mission and the purpose of the hire’s role.
As a result, you will achieve increased productivity and ultimately, increased profit.
Recruiters stay at a business they are emotionally involved with, that journey starts with onboarding. Therefore, don’t underestimate how important it is!
