We all know it: onboarding is important, and making an employee's first 90 days as productive as possible can proactively increase engagement, discretionary effort, and satisfaction. But, what about all of the hours spent submitting applications and materials, and the empty days during the interview process?
In today's interconnected world, onboarding begins with the click of a mouse or the scroll of a feed. Organizational websites, customer and employee experiences all send a potent message to both future hires and new hires about what an organization values, and how they treat their workforce. Smart organizations have learned firsthand how to be proactive, and lay the groundwork for an onboarding program that engages the best and brightest talent before they even walk through the door.
