Employee Onboarding - Turnover

No significant increase is witnessed in the overall productivity of the organization unless there is a well-balanced employee turnover in an organization. The mangers choose critically the best recruitment patterns, performance evaluation system and effective administrative practices and engagement methodology to keep the retention level in balance.

  • Up to 20% of employee turnover happens in the first 45 days

  • 69% of employees are more likely to stay with a company for three years if they experienced great onboarding
