Now that you know just how revealing and vital onboarding statistics can be for your business, you might wonder how to collect this data. HR software is the best way to track these metrics. Key Performance Indicators indicating employee retention rates and turnover rates over a period of time are a great way to visualize if your onboarding programs have been successful.
Another useful way to collect feedback on onboarding practices is to send employee surveys assessing how you could have improved employee onboarding experience. Indeed, employee feedback is key to improving your entire onboarding process, and a great driver of employee engagement!
“We track how long an employee stays with our company, which we then compare to the employee’s impression of their own onboarding. Based on a survey completed at the end of onboarding, we realized that these first few weeks are absolutely crucial in retaining talent later. After all, first impressions are crucial!”
