More than three-quarters of organizations are not effectively onboarding their new hires, according to a recent survey of 350 HR leaders conducted by Kronos and the Human Capital Institute (HCI). Here are additional findings from the report:

  • Only 40% of respondents said that their onboarding program was successful at retaining new hires
  • Nearly a quarter indicated they have no onboarding program at all.
  • More than half of those survey said that managers don’t have time to dedicate to improving the onboarding process.
  • 60% say that the purpose of onboarding is to integrate new employees into the company culture, but only 30% indicate that their onboarding process focuses on culture.
