Tip Tuesday: Developing the Best Onboarding Experience for New Hires

Developing the Best Onboarding Experience for New Hires

Thirty-three percent of employees decide to stay with a new job or leave within the first three months of employment. Similarly, about 28 percent of new hires quit within 90 days. While there are a few reasons why an employee may choose to leave so early, one of the most common reasons is the lack of a structured onboarding process. Surprisingly, research shows that 35 percent of companies spend no money on onboarding at all, which means many of them are left behind by organizations that invest money in their onboarding processes.

Many companies—especially dental practices—tend to approach onboarding with a “sink-or-swim” mentality. The thought behind this is that if an employee is able to “survive,” then they should be a valuable asset. However, you need to ask yourself this: Do you want new hires to merely survive, or do you want them to thrive?

In the first two blogs in our HR series, we explored how to recruit and interview candidates for open positions. Now, we’d like to switch gears and focus on creating a great onboarding experience for new hires to feel comfortable in your practice. Read the blog linked below to explore onboarding best practices and how to set up your new employees to thrive in the long term.
