Let us do a throwback to your first day of work. Were you instructed to wait inside an empty room (for the unknown) or were you welcomed with open arms, had a desk all ready and then introduced to your colleagues?
Employee onboarding is the process where new employees get an idea of what your company culture is like and you only have one chance to get it right.
Data gathered by ADP® DataCloud shows that more than 25 per cent of employees left their jobs within the first 60 days. This is why it is crucial to make a good impression because it would determine whether it would make them stay.
Today, we are seeing the future of HR in the hands of blockchain, a cross-industry disruptor.
Blockchain is commonly known as the technology behind the much talked about Bitcoin. It has also been compared to the internet, which has transformed the way businesses work completely. Since its invention in 2008, it hasn’t faced any disruption besides a few hacks or mismanagement.
Not just an ‘orientation’
Employee onboarding should not be just another ‘orientation’ new employees go through where they fill up forms and get told to ‘come back when it is completed’. It is a process where they should be informed about their expected performance, educated about the rules and work culture.

Today, we are seeing an increasing use of social tools. If technology is here to make our lives better, why don’t we leverage on it to ensure a smooth onboarding experience for new employees? We live in an era where everyone expects to access information at their fingertips.
