Onboarding is probably the most crucial yet often overlooked part of your recruitment process.
You’ve found the perfect employee, spent thousands on advertising, agencies, internal management time, interviews and internal process, just to get to this point.
Only you know that for the next month there is the potential for counter-offers, cold feet, no-shows and apathy. Not to mention the cost of all that contractual mail, forms that need signing and returning, compliance and readiness for payroll. Mountains of paperwork, postage costs, getting forms back and internal time.
Did you know on average, 22% of employees are ‘lost’ in the first 45 days? Think about the cost to the business? The disruption time. The logistics of going back to the start of the recruitment process.
Onboarding is the culmination of the recruitment process. The immersive bit, part job sell, part induction, part contractual.
It sets the tone for the following years and has a massive part to play in the commitment of the new starter and their vocational wellbeing.
Done properly, it has a significant effect on the success of the business, the team they will be joining, their productivity and can save not just time, but huge amounts of money and credibility.

What can Day-One achieve?
Onboarding starts before the employee has even resigned from their previous role.
It immerses the new starter in the culture, vision and values of the new organisation.
It allows the line manager to prepare, chat, buddy and supervise the process perfectly.
It answers all the questions the appointee has and reassures them that they have made the right choice.
It educates, acts as an employer brand ambassador and prepares them for the role ahead.
It gives them passion for the business and the role.
It empowers them to do the job and makes them feel respected and considered.
It simplifies the contractural process by allowing them to see and sign their offer, contract and any supporting materials online.
And it’s a huge online resource, a wealth of information they can use to feel empowered and ready to make their mark.
