2. Onboarding Means Engagement
Employee engagement can be defined as your level of emotional involvement and commitment to your working organisation and its mission and goals.
Employee engagement is a fundamental new employee onboarding metric for any organisation, as the higher the level of engagement, the higher the business outcomes of the company. Korn Ferry highlights that organisations in the top quartile on engagement demonstrate revenue growth 2.5 times that of organisations in the bottom quartile. Moreover, revenue growth jumps to 4.5 times in companies where employees are also highly enabled.
3. Onboarding Means Social Connection
Onboarding presents many social benefits for new employees, as social integration is a key component of a good onboarding process.
Your loyalty to an organisation is dependent on the depth of social relationships established within the organisation, and not just the work itself and the benefits you obtain out of it.
Gallup identified that employees who declare having a best friend at work are 35% more likely to report coworker commitment to quality
4. Onboarding Means Job Preparedness for Future Excellence
The Onboarding phase is essential to empower you to achieve the best possible performance in your new role. It will give you all the knowledge, skills, and confidence to shine in your new position.
Moreover, although your company will have some predefined processes and targets for the onboarding phase, it is essential that there is room for you to express your needs and ask for supplementary support in case of need.
Unfortunately, only 52% of companies report being able to match specific onboarding practices to how much support the employee needs during the transition, according to HCI.
In order to be prepared for future excellence, you need to be self-aware of your journey, the requirements for gaining productive independence.
Successive onboarding means keeping track of your progress and having a structured framework based on milestones for achieving fast productivity in your job.
5. Onboarding Means Job Satisfaction
If onboarding has made you feel engaged with your new workplace, and confident with what you can add to it, there is a very high chance that you are highly satisfied with your job, maybe even more than what you would have expected.
Employees with an exceptional onboarding experience are 2.6 times as likely to be extremely satisfied with their place of work, according to HCI.
Additionally, Gallup identified that those employees who strongly agree that their onboarding process was exceptional are 3.3 times as likely to strongly agree their job is as good, or better, than expected.
