Updating your onboarding process might not be at the top of every HR professional’s priority list, but it probably should be especially if it’s been over a year since your last update.
Why? Because an outdated onboarding experience might be sending the wrong signals about a company and causing needless confusion at the very time when new hires are looking to understand their new employer and find their place in the organization. If that’s not enough incentive, updating your onboarding also produces some major long-term benefits.
When was the last time you updated your onboarding process? Was it six months ago? One year ago? Five years ago?
We get it — time flies. And while it might feel like it was just yesterday when you created your awesome new onboarding process, before you know it, a year has passed and it’s time to review, refine and update again.
