Onboarding new hires is easier said than done.
According to a study conducted by SHRM, 17% of new hires leave their companies in the first 3 months and one-third in their first six months due to the lack of an effective Onboarding process. Apart from attrition, the amount of manual paperwork and verifications is an overhead for both HR managers and the new hires. And, it’s not uncommon to have errors and miss-outs leading to various repercussions like statutory fines due to misfiling, delay in background verifications, etc.
Let's jump into a typical day for an HR when a new employee joins.
Mohan is going to start his new job tomorrow. It’s an important move in his career. This is not his first job yet there is some level of anxiety as to how tomorrow morning is going to unravel. He has made sure he has photocopies and originals of all necessary documents. Hopefully, there will be lesser forms to fill, and paperwork and document verification are going to take less time. At least that’s what Ramya, the HR Manager, has told him. But he also understands that there are at least 10 other new hires who are going to join with him. He empathizes with Ramya. She has committed that it will take less time, but with her onboarding 10 new hires, there will be chaos.
Have you been in a situation like Ramya? Or like Mohan?
