Staff turnover is a costly problem for Canadian employers. In a recent 2022 survey* turnover cost Canadian businesses an average of $41,000 every year, with more than 1 in 10 hiring managers reporting employee turnover expenses of $100,000 annually. The survey reported top reasons for employee turnover that included feeling overworked (33%) and increased workplace demands (29%) as reasons for leaving.
Organisations can greatly increase the likelihood that a new employee will stay by implementing a well-designed onboarding program that will guide the employee through their first months in their new role and address known retention issues from the get-go. This workshop will cover the all the basics, including how onboarding a new employee is different from orientation, the benefits of onboarding, how to design an onboarding framework, and how to track and measure results.
By the end of this session, participants will learn about:
- Definition of onboarding how it is different from orientation
- The business benefits of onboarding
- Factors that contribute to a successful onboarding program
- How to design a framework for an onboarding program
- How to customize onboarding framework for an organisation
- Key metrics to track and evaluate program results
