Does onboarding relate to employee engagement, retention and productivity? As part of BI WORLDWIDE's staff engagement strategy, we ask HR to explain how Associates are made to feel part of the business from their very first day.
Onboarding programmes are high priority for BI WORLDWIDE, we are introducing an average of six new Associates each month with our strategic growth plans. As employee engagement thought leaders, we know the importance of a great onboarding programme and constant training. This article from TalentCulture – World of work, makes the case for a strategy and comprehensive onboarding programme very well.
We asked our HR Director Laurence Rix to explain our programme: “Eight weeks into their careers with BIWORLDWIDE, all new Associates meet with the Head of HR. They talk about their experience of the recruitment process, the induction schedule designed for them, how welcome they have been made to feel in their new team and whether the job is living up to their expectations.
"Why should we be so interested in the thoughts of people who have only been with us for two months? Because the quality of the onboarding process is key to ensuring that new starters settle in and perform to their full potential as soon as possible."
