Before the first day

Over 30% of new hires are already searching for a new job in their first weeks, or even worse, not showing up for the first day at all*. The real importance of pre-boarding is to keep your candidate engaged and interested so they walk in the door that first day, ready to jump in, rather than jump ship.

Pre-boarding is a specific subset of onboarding, which is the period from offer acceptance to the new employee’s first day. It’s a crucial step in the onboarding journey that can make a big difference in helping your new hire get ready for their new position. Think about what the new employee needs from your organisation; basic knowledge, confidence, supporting resources, and cultural integration.
