Although SHRM estimates that almost a quarter of new hires quit before their one-year anniversary and that one-third fail to meet performance expectations, we know that effective onboarding practices have a significant influence on employee engagement, performance, and retention.
Is your speed to engagement and productivity for new hires where it should be?
Most new employees take 3-24 months to “get up to speed.” This wide disparity provides wonderful opportunities for organizations looking to decrease “ramp time.”
In a recent survey, 210 CEO’s estimated the time for a typical mid-level manager to reach “break-even” as 6.2 months. Using an average salary of $100,000, the difference between a 3-month ramp and a 6.2-month ramp is approximately $26,500 per employee.
This does not account for differences in revenue, margin, utilization, or productivity. It is only the salary side of the equation.
For a company hiring a minimum of 100 new employees per year, this creates a $2.6m window of opportunity for an improved new hire process. For companies closer to the 24-month mark, the opportunity is as large as $17.5m.
The main point is that, when combined with the common challenges of hiring the right employees and creating a high performance environment for them to thrive, most organizations have ample room for improvement in their new hire processes. Unfortunately, many companies continue to struggle with the most controllable part of the equation — effectively and efficiently assimilating new employees.
To combat the eight common drivers of ineffective new hire programs, LSA offers a variety of customized and off-the-shelf new employee orientation onboarding programs to increase the speed to productivity of new hires:
New hires and new employees
What new hires say about our new employee onboarding solutions:
“This is the best onboarding experience as a new hire I’ve ever had with any company. The new hire Survivors’ Guide is incredible.”
“The new hire checklists are of great help. The new hire Survivors’ Guide is great. I am very happy with my progress during my first 90 day period.”
“I’m very pleased and positively surprised with this new hire orientation and onboarding program. It’s not normal for a company invest in and train new hires in this efficacy and quality.”
What hiring managers say about new employee on-boarding:
“The guidance provided with the new hire orientation program is really valuable. It promotes communication and collaboration and reduces the ramp up time for on-boarding new employees.”
“As a hiring manager, I was at first skeptical of the process. Now, I mandate that all new employees go through the new hire orientation process because it saves me time and dramatically increases their speed to productivity.”
“With my success dependent upon the success of my team, getting new hires up to speed quickly is critical to support our growth plans. The customized new hire on-boarding and orientation process is making a big difference.”

We held our 1st Year Academy for our new associates last week, and the critical segment that LSA helped us redesign went exceptionally well.
Their instructional design skills made it more relevant, more interactive, and more engaging.
We greatly appreciate what LSA did to help us greatly improve a key component of our program!
