What Actions Should We Take From Our Onboarding Surveys?
As we say with all our surveys, it’s important not to simply send the employee onboarding survey without real intent and appropriate resources to act on the findings afterwards. Here are some of the things you should be looking at.
1. Create an Industry-Leading Onboarding Programme
Data shows that only 19% of people think their organisation does a great job of employee onboarding. This means that there’s a good chance that you have room to improve your process. But it also means that you can easily surpass your competition. By implementing feedback actions specific to your onboarding process, you’ll be putting yourself in the best position to succeed.
2. Build on Successes & Improve Weaknesses
Onboarding surveys are great for identifying successes and weaknesses not only in your onboarding process but also in your organisational culture as a whole. These can be easy wins which you’re able to take quick action on. Alternatively, you may be able to identify larger-scale projects which will make a real difference to your culture.
3. Implement Fresh Ideas From Fresh Eyes
Your newest team members will be coming into your organisation with a fresh perspective. They’ll also have ideas of things that worked well in their previous organisations. But there’s also a good chance they’ll have strong opinions on what they don’t want. By using their feedback and ideas you’ll be able to take the best ideas and park those which don’t work for the individuals in your organisation.
4. Build a Better Culture For Everyone
It’s a myth that onboarding only benefits new employees. In fact, it can help everyone. Fresh ideas and new insights can help your team across the organisation. Plus, by bringing in more wide-scale insights for the wider culture, not just the onboarding process, you’ll be able to implement changes that build a better work environment and a thriving culture for everyone in your organisation.
