Strategic Onboarding Global Trends Report 2018

The Awakening: Onboarding Emerges as a Strategic Driver

In recent years, especially in the current labor market, organizations have placed an emphasis onboarding, yet have struggled to find the right mix of connection to strategy, streamlined processes, and an engaging and personalized new hire experience.

This survey, conducted by Rival, formerly SilkRoad Technology, captured the thoughts of hundreds of HR leaders across the world on the state of global strategic onboarding. Conducted by SilkRoad between April and May 2018, the survey gathers the thoughts of over 400 HR leaders in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.

The survey report findings detail how organizational leadership increasingly sees improved onboarding as a strategic imperative to support the success of the business, yet most programs are too abbreviated to drive business results as nearly 80 percent of programs are three months or less in length. The report offers practical next steps for organizations that are looking to increase the maturity of their onboarding strategy.

Report highlights:

  • Top challenge—management engagement
  • Key performance indicators—engagement and retention
  • Top outcome—new hire engagement
  • Big data = big driver of change
  • Much more!
