After more than a year of pandemic induced layoffs, it’s now an employee’s market. A candidate might say yes, but then turn around and decline….right before they start. Companies are learning that it’s important to start onboarding as soon as a candidate accepts their offer.
Onboarding is the magic moment when new employees decide to stay engaged or become disengaged. It shows that the company cares and is excited about the new team member and leaves an impression that stays with the employee for the duration of their careers.
Onboarding not only gives a good first impression but leads to higher employee retention. In fact, a recent survey suggested that 69% of employees are more likely to stay with a company for at least three years if they experience great onboarding.
At Ultimate Kits, we understand how much first impressions impact an employee’s experience and how, now more than ever, early onboarding is critical to achieve higher employee retention. That’s why we have worked with clients like Siepe to create “Welcome Kits” with the goal to engage a new hire before they even start!
Let us help you create a one-of-a-kind onboarding kit that expresses your corporate culture complete with your company colors, logo’d swag, custom messaging, and an assortment of hand-selected items.
