CINCINNATI – June 22, 2016 -- Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global association for strategic talent management, today announced the release of its latest Talent Pulse, a quarterly research eBook addressing the biggest trends and challenges in talent management. This edition, “Onboarding Outcomes: Fulfill New Hire Expectations” explores how organizations are utilizing onboarding programs today, and the role onboarding plays in creating a positive candidate experience.

For too long, onboarding has been an ignored or inconsistent talent management practice. In most organizations, official onboarding consists more of process and paperwork rather than focusing on people and performance. “A great candidate experience is crucial to attracting great talent, and onboarding is a natural extension of that experience,” said Carl Rhodes, CEO of HCI. “It’s the perfect opportunity for companies to show their new hires that they made the right decision in accepting the job offer.”

From a survey of over 400 organizations, key research findings include:

  • Two-thirds report that onboarding practices have been underutilized.
  • In most organizations, onboarding activities stop after the first week in the new role.
  • Most respondents believe that ‘re-boarding’ an internal hire is just as important as onboarding an external hire.

Jenna Filipkowski, PhD, Director of Research and Aubrey Wiete, Senior Director of Enterprise Solutions, will review the findings in detail on a live webcast on August 10, 2016 at 12:00pm ET. Click here to register.
