Infographic: How onboarding affects employee engagement

Three-quarters of workers who receive proper training say they feel loyal to their employers, whereas more than half of disengaged employees report getting poor training or none at all.

When communicators talk about improving employee engagement, they typically discuss how a better intranet, manager-employee communication or perks can boost engagement rates.

There is one often-overlooked area, however, that can significantly affect whether an employee is engaged: onboarding.

Organizations should pay close attention to how they train new employees, an infographic from Onbordia says, because providing inadequate training can have dire consequences for employee engagement: 56 percent of disengaged employees say they received ineffective training or none at all.

On the other hand, 75 percent of employees who had good onboarding experiences say they feel loyal to their employers, and 62 percent of engaged employees say they’ve received proper training.

How is your organization’s onboarding process? What do you do to ensure that employees are engaged in their work and the company from day one?
