- More than two-thirds of HR leaders (76%) say onboarding processes are underutilized at their organization, according to a joint study from Kronos and the Human Capital Institute. Results also showed that a typical onboarding experience focuses heavily on administrative paperwork for new hires, rather than on development and training activities.
- Although nearly two-thirds of respondents said the purpose of onboarding is to integrate new hires into the company culture, this aspect makes up only 30% of onboarding programs, on average. Another segment (24%) of organizations lack a strategy for “trans-boarding,” or managing an internal onboarding.
- Fewer HR managers in the study rated strategic onboarding as important as other onboarding components like reviewing rules and regulations, presenting a company overview and teaching self-service processes. More than half of respondents said that a lack of bandwidth is a significant barrier to improving onboarding.
