Knowledge @ Noon – Effective Onboarding by M3

June 13, 2023: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Knowledge @ Noon is a monthly webinar series designed to help manufacturers stay up-to-date with the latest trends, ideas, and best practices. Each month will feature a new topic led by industry experts who will share insights and provide valuable knowledge and tools to help your organizations learn and grow.

In this Knowledge @ Noon monthly series the *Manufacturing Innovation Network will explore the significance of effective onboarding, a critical process for organizations that helps to increase employee engagement, reduce turnover rates, and improve productivity by providing structured support and training for new hires.

Statistics on the importance of onboarding:

  • According to a survey conducted by Careerbuilder and Silkroad Technology (nine percent,) or 1 in 10 have left a company because of a poor onboarding experience, and 37% percent of employees said their manager did not play a critical role in their onboarding experience support.
  • Without proper onboarding procedures increases in employee turnover and loss of productivity occur. This decreased employee engagement costs companies large sums of money every year.
  • When a company has great onboarding 69% of employees are likely to stay for at least 3 years.

SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management):

  • 69 percent of employees are more likely to stay with a company for three years if they experienced great onboarding.
  • New employees who went through a structured onboarding program were 58 percent more likely to be with the organization after three years.
  • Organizations with a standard onboarding process experience 50 percent greater new-hire productivity.
