“I hear many horror stories from new hires and they all are similar — the employee accepts an offer, doesn’t hear from their new employer until Day 1, and when he/she arrives on Day 1 the organization seems unaware that the new hire exists,” explains Vecchio. “First impressions matter – with the high cost of replacing an employee, employers can’t afford to maintain the status quo. They need to optimize their onboarding/new hire experience because it is critical to maximizing and sustaining employee engagement. They need to optimize their onboarding/new hire experience to remain competitive.”
