Provide an Engaging Onboarding Experience

According to an Aberdeen Group report, “Welcome to the 21st Century, Onboarding,” one of the best things HR can do is ditch the paper forms. In fact, the report states that companies with pre-boarding are 11% more likely to retain first-year employees than companies without pre-boarding.

A new employee’s first day is often filled with a stack of forms to fill out—usually alone in their office or cubicle. Not engaging. Providing the opportunity for new hires to complete forms online at their convenience before they set foot in the office frees up that first day for more personal experiences: meeting coworkers, talking to the boss, going out to lunch, touring the facility, learning the routine, meeting HR staff, or being paired with a mentor.

Read about three ways to improve the experience in Andre Lavoie’s article, “3 Benefits of Digital Onboarding.” Not surprisingly, they include using paperless forms. Making them available wherever your new hires have internet access is another plus, especially for millennials.
