What does your onboarding process look like?
“Studies show that roughly 33 percent of employees decide to stay onboard with a firm or jump ship within their first 30 days of employment,” Dummies.com.
One of the biggest issues faced by organizations today is a lack of onboarding knowledge. You understand how to put out job descriptions, how to interview applicants, and how to pick the best one. However, you struggle when it’s time to train the new hire. The reason for this struggle can sometimes be due to mismatched expectations of the hiring party and the manager. For example, the manager might expect the new hires to come to the job fully loaded and ready to tackle their tasks. The hiring party, on the other hand, might expect that the manager will take time to train the new employee.
Whatever the expectations may be, there should always be some sort of job training that takes place at the organization. After all, each company is different; each company has its own rules and its own standards. By neglecting to train new hires on these rules and standards, you set them up for failure. An onboarding process is crucial to your organization. Not only is having an onboarding process considerate to your new hires, but it also helps you prevent another issue: employee turnover!
Onboarding new salespeople can often take a lot of time. If you’re a smaller business, time is a luxury you might not be able to afford. Especially if the time you’ve spent onboarding new employees produces unproductive and ineffective salespeople.
