Finding top talent continues to be challenging and often positions are open longer than anticipated.  As a result, it is important to jump start a new hire’s performance.

The onboarding process must continue through the new hire’s first three months of employment.  What happens during their initial months on a new job accurately predicts the level of success they will experience after their initial 90 days.

When a new hire achieves success early, during thetransition period of a new job, environment and company culture, they becomeengaged, productive and are more likely to be retained.

Another important element in retaining new hires is implementingmentoring plan for new employees.  New employees want to establish their value as quickly as possible, so they can succeed and thrive in their new working environment.  An assigned mentor from your company can provide great support in this process.

However, with millennials representing the majority in the workforce there is a new era of mentoring. As millennials continue to evolve the workplace there are different styles of mentorship programs at work which can be implemented to retain these new hires.


When you hire the best possible people, you want them to become productive, engaged and retained.  Your onboarding, employee retention strategies and mentoring process must be updated and effective.  The stakes in today’s competitive job market are simply too high to do otherwise.
