How checklists ensure a successful onboarding process

Having a good employee onboarding process makes onboarding new employees a breeze. In pandemic times, it is also crucial to be prepared for virtual onboarding. Additionally, having virtual team-building activities can promote staff engagement in the following steps and also creates a better work environment, enhancing the company culture.

An onboarding checklist guarantees a perfect employee's first day of work while familiarising with the company's tools. With editable checklists, employees can be assigned tasks and clearly set responsibilities. Here are some templates available in kiwiHR that support your hr team in the onboarding and offboarding processes:

How to effectively prevent employee turnover and reduce costs

As of now, every fourth employee leaves the company during the first year of employment, with 20% of them during the first 45 days. Therefore, one can assume that employees quickly get a very meaningful picture of the new employer and draw their own conclusions even if it’s negative. However, employees can be retained with a structured onboarding process.

Skilled labour shortage, a good economy and generally low unemployment lead to high demand for suitable employees in the market. Staff turnover is high, especially in metropolitan areas. A termination and a new hiring process inevitably leads to high costs, such as job advertisements and lengthy interview process.

According to statistics, new hires need 8-12 months to reach the level of their former colleague. Therefore, less productivity is to be expected as new employees get trained and introduced into the business processes.

The importance of having a structured offboarding process

Organisations shouldn't underestimate the potential impact of an inexistent offboarding process. Employees who do not feel valued when they leave a company could still cause lasting damage to the company, regardless if the contract was terminated by the company or if the employee left by preference.

Due to the immense influence of portals such as kununu on potential new applicants, employees should not be given any reason to leave negative comments about the company because of an ineffective offboarding. Having a well-structured offboarding process, including an exit interview, will not only enable departing employees to leave the company with respect, but it will also prevent your employer branding from being negatively affected.
