A new report has revealed that a fifth of new hires said that their onboarding experience made them question their choice of jobs.

The research, carried out by Cezanne HR, analysed the state of employee onboarding in the UK and Ireland.

And, according to the findings, many employers are making simple yet fundamental mistakes, which are damaging the morale, confidence and trust of newly hired workers.

Nearly two thirds of new employees said that their onboarding experience was stressful, while 20% felt they’d been left isolated or alone during this time.

Paul Bauer, Cezanne HR’s Head of Content, commented on the findings, “Onboarding new employees is an organisation’s opportunity to make that vital first good impression. A positive experience can lead to reduced turnover, higher staff engagement, and improved productivity – amongst other things. Yet, our survey has discovered that good onboarding practices aren’t as widespread as they should be, and this should be of real concern to HR teams.”

“If a new hire feels isolated, forgotten, or unsupported, it can dramatically reduce their long-term chance of success with their new employer. It’s imperative that HR looks to address and prevent these types of issues when welcoming new staff, or they may risk losing the battle for talent.”
