Make Onboarding Count as a Retention Strategy

Workforce transformation is coming.
Onboarding helps your people get ready.

One in four CFOs say the cost of unwanted turnover accounts for 25% to 50% of labor costs. One in 10 say it eats up more than 50%.


With labor pools shrinking, retaining talent at every level is critical in this age of digital disruption

The rapid adoption of advanced technologies mean that many organizations are focused more than ever on recruiting—particularly for skills they need to succeed, such as expertise in data science, cyber-security and artificial intelligence. Evidence suggests that engaging employees and retaining them requires a purposeful, ongoing strategic view. Especially as workers must learn new skills and advance their careers while continuing to drive business outcomes like productivity, profitability and customer satisfaction. CFO’s face a new reality:

  • The high costs and causes of unwanted turnover and effective methods of increasing retention
  • The correlation between turnover, onboarding and engagement
  • The secrets to low turnover, based on the characteristics of low and high-turnover firms
  • Bottom line: Engaged employees lead to happy customers
