Setting up new starters for success: secrets for better onboarding

The onboarding phase is critical for staff retention: more than two-thirds of employees are likely to stay with an organisation for three years or more if they experience a great induction phase. But separate data suggests that only around 10% of employees consider their organisation’s onboarding programme to have been any good.

And, for the first time ever, the UK has recently recorded having more job vacancies than unemployed people – meaning it’s harder than ever to secure the right candidates, and retain them.
