Onboarding programs enable new hires to quickly and easily become proficient in their roles by learning the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors needed to function in a given organization. For too long, onboarding has been an ignored or inconsistent talent management practice. This is troubling because 20% of new hires leave in the first 45 days. HCI believes onboarding is an extension of the candidate experience and when executed effectively leads to sustained engagement and faster time to proficiency. In this research, we profile successful onboarding practices, budgets, stakeholders, challenges, and outcomes. We surveyed HR practitioners who are designing and implementing onboarding in order to determine the elements of a successful program.
