In today’s fast paced business environment, getting new hires up to speed as quickly and as effectively as possible is more important than ever. An effective onboarding strategy can make sure this happens, and improve employee retention, engagement and performance over time. But many companies don’t bother establishing one, and if they do, it doesn’t include structured training. This lack of structure can wreak havoc on the organization’s ability to develop and retain employees at a time when instilling organizational values matter most.

Reality is, nearly a third of new employees quit their jobs within a year, and a lack of effective onboarding and training programs take the brunt of the blame. This trend is costing companies a lot of money – it can cost up to 3 times an employee’s salary to replace him or her with a new employee. Millennial turnover alone, for example, costs organization $30.5 billion in lost costs, according to research by Gallup.
