January 18, 2022

The onboarding process is more important than it ever has been before due to the rapidly changing workforce of 2021. The expectations employees have towards their employer have changed drastically since millennials and generation z joined the workforce, but in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, job satisfaction is ranked according to even stricter criteria than it was before the crisis. New employees will be even less forgiving of the perceived shortcomings of their employment, so maintaining the enthusiasm of new employees should be the priority of all forward-thinking businesses.

The Unilateral Approach

Once you have hired a new employee, the best practice for staff retention is to have a structed onboarding process plan in place. A big mistake busy bosses can make is to concentrate on hiring new staff and leave employee satisfaction up to fate, or up to line managers and supervisors who would actually benefit from a unanimous approach to counteract the discrepancies between their respective management styles.

Keep Your Promises

A good work-life balance is prioritised highly by candidates on the hunt for new employment and therefore it should be offered (and even emphasised) to staff who have just joined your company. Flexible working is not possible in some industries but a demonstration of respect regarding their time and ensuring your implement the advertised benefits is conducive to sustaining interest in the role long-term.

Sustain the Onboarding Process

If you have a history of employees leaving the role within the first 6 months, then whether it is only a handful of recruits or linked a continuously high turnover rate, an evaluation of why this is occurring needs immediate attention. The first step of the onboarding process is the prevention of receiving an employee notice within the first few months to a year of newer employees starting, but it should seem obvious that continuing to facilitate employee engagement is an ongoing process.

Understandably, time and resources are finite factors that managers do not necessarily have at their disposal consistently. If you would like to look at improving your onboarding process to engender the creation of motivated staff members carving out long careers with your company, get in touch with us today to see how we can help you to do just that.

    Perspectives have shifted dramatically since covid came into focus in 2020, in every area of a person’s life, from relationships to socialising and most pertinently, employment. The media was awash with stories of people leaving their jobs and while hospitality may have been the hardest hit sector initially, this spotlight on job satisfaction made processes such as employees assessment even more important than previously.
