Onboarding: the First Step in the Retention of Top Talent
The time between when a candidate accepts an offer of employment and when they officially start work is arguably the most important time period in the lifecycle of an employee.
The reason is simple: that is when they are most at risk to accept an offer from another employer, accept a counteroffer from their current employer, or simply change their mind.
So, what can an employer do? How can an employer ensure that this critical period is addressed in a way that is beneficial for both the organization and the soon-to-be new employee?
The answer is a stellar and effective onboarding process.
