3 Signs It's Time to Update Your New Hire Onboarding Training

You Have Not Revised Your Program in More Than A Year

New Hire Training needs to be reviewed regularly. Processes and policies are constantly changing. A one-and-done approach to new hire training will end in frustration for all parties involved. Ensure that your program is optimized by reviewing the program and content at least twice a year. Take a continuous improvement approach to ensure the program remains engaging and effective (add new content, update the design, explore new learning formats, etc.)

Your Employees Quit in Their First 90 Days

Poor new hire attrition rates are often a key indicator of a poorly executed onboarding program. Onboarding is the first impression that a company can make to a new employee, and if not done right, it will help the new hire to decide how long they will stay at a company.

Poor Survey Results (or No Survey Results)

If you’ve noticed a decline in positive feedback regarding your onboarding process or training content, this is a huge sign that it is time to reevaluate the program and make some changes. Some of the best indicators of a program will come directly from its participants. Look at how your new hires rate the overall onboarding experience as well as the content delivered in the program.

If you don’t have any feedback surveys for your onboarding program, begin now. A simple 3-question survey can provide you insight to help grow and improve onboarding.
