Why New Hire Surveys
Improve Retention with Employee Onboarding Surveys from HSD
Surveying your organization’s new hires is ultimately about retention. Finding out if a new hire is comfortable in their position, with their supervisors and being adequately supported and trained is critical. If a new staff member feels ill equipped to perform their job, is experiencing hostility or other discomforts with their peers or supervisors, they are likely to quit.
You can gain very important feedback with an employee onboarding survey, which can improve your retention rates and foster happier staff members. One useful goal in surveying new hires is evaluating your organization’s recruiting and hiring process. In this instance, it’s a good idea to survey new employees soon after their hire date so that the experience is still fresh in their minds. With this information, you can uncover new ways to be more effective when hiring.
