Onboarding in a Box: Your Complete New Hire Resource Kit
June 9, 2015
You thought you had that candidate in the bag after they signed the offer letter. In reality, they’re still determining if their new career choice was the right choice.
The onboarding process is a make-or-break first impression, and new hires are quick to make a decision. 1 in 4 employees quit within the first 45 days, and even 4% of new hires leave after a disastrous first day. When their gut tells them that the expectations of the job or the company were misrepresented, or that the room for growth isn’t there, they are quick to act.
