The 1 thing you need to do in 2019 to not lose your top talent in 2020

Companies are continually blindsided by their top performers putting in their 2-week notice, but 2020 can be the year that you turn it around and retain your key players. All you have to do is put in a little work in the last few months of 2019. Here’s the one thing you can do now to ensure 2020 sees less turnover: revamp your onboarding experience.

69% of employees are likely to stay with a company if they experience great onboarding.

The good news? We can do it for you.

Now is the time. Not later, when you’re buried in new-hire paperwork and start-of-the-year processes. Right now, in 2019, before the hire is made.

Turnover is highest in January due to new job postings, the new year for a new adventure, getting through the holidays or waiting on the holiday bonus before putting in their notice. This also means hiring is at its highest in January.

Setting up the experience now means your new hires are jumping in and seeing their impact almost immediately, gaining satisfaction in the job faster and staying with you longer. A positive onboarding experience should help employees discover how their roles fit in with the rest of the company’s workforce and culture, leading to stronger engagement and more invested employees.
