Does your business have an effective onboarding process? Does it involve physical handbooks or employee training software? And why is training new hires so important?
The truth is, introducing your new hires to your company with a solid training process can provide several benefits. Learn more about the true value of a trained employee!
Welcoming your new hire through an onboarding process has a tremendous effect on long-term productivity. In fact, 53% of HR professionals say that employee engagement rises when onboarding is improved.
By making sure your current new hire process is effective, or by adding employee training software, you can feel confident that most individuals will understand exactly how to perform their job without any confusion. When you invest in a solid training process, you are also investing in an employee who is engaged, well-informed and productive.
Did you know that 28% of new hires are willing to quit their new jobs if they don’t find it satisfactory within the first 90 days? An onboarding program can help your employees feel more comfortable and well-informed in their new position from the start.
Nothing is worse than starting a new job and feeling like no one is there to guide you. Being lost in a new environment without a mentor or any training content to refer to can be extremely discouraging, which may eventually cause a new hire to leave. Make a great first impression on your new employee and they will be more likely to stay committed to your company in the long-term.
Utilizing employee training software doesn’t only help new hires become more informed on their position and work environment, but also on rules, regulations, laws and any other content related to risk management.
Training new hires on safety can help you avoid liability and make them feel at ease if a dangerous situation occurs. Being upfront about responsibilities and expectations through training can help your business avoid conflict.
