With so much movement in the employment market right now, there’s an increased focus on employee retention. Your retention strategy should kick in during the recruitment phase, with onboarding playing a critical part. Here’s how a great onboarding experience can improve your employee retention.
How to transform your onboarding process and why you should
When was the last time you heard someone ask for more forms to fill out? Probably never, right? Onboarding forms and formalities are just about everyone’s least favourite part of a new hire or job, but they are unavoidable.
The good news is that you can deliver a fast, compliant and easy onboarding experience without the admin headache. Here’s how — and why you should.
Put your best foot forward to be the perfect agency
Recruiters need to put their best foot forward to attract the best clients and talent in a candidate-short market. According to The Undercover Recruiter, there are some key traits your clients are looking for, and a seamless onboarding experience can help you deliver:
Clients are looking for a recruitment agency that’s always trying to get better
Hear! Hear! Continuous improvement is critical for any business, and looking for tech to streamline your hiring process is the best way to deliver. Onboarding is a significant piece of the puzzle. Done wrong, it can be your biggest bottleneck, but get it right, and it could be your greatest source of competitive advantage.
Clients want an agency that follows the process that was promised
Most agencies promise fast, quality hiring, but if your onboarding process is still paper-based, chances are you aren’t delivering. An efficient, digital onboarding experience gets candidates onsite and ready to work faster.
Attract the best talent and win more business
A fast, efficient and digital onboarding plays a vital role in attracting talent and winning more business because:
- It speeds up your internal processes, saving you time and labour costs while delivering more for your stakeholders.
- It delivers a winning candidate experience, keeping them engaged with a seamless experience, not more paperwork and scanning. This is a critical piece of the puzzle, with 4 out of 5 candidates believing that their experience as a candidate reflects how your organisation values its people.
- It delivers for your clients as new hires can hit the ground running on day one, with no delays or admin errors slowing things down.
- It keeps people in jobs longer. In fact, according to technology hub, G2, 69% of employees are more likely to stay with an employer if they experience great onboarding.
