Solution Set Storyboard Thumbnail
  • New hire surveys often have low response rates due to a lack of confidence in the survey's confidentiality or a lack of understanding of how the data will be used.
  • New hire data may be collected and reviewed, but it is not shared across HR or with business leaders for analysis and action planning to make changes or improvements.
  • New hire survey data analysis is often done in a silo, without examining other employee survey results such as engagement or exit for consistent themes or insights.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • Identify and address organizational challenges that, if left unresolved, can lead to higher turnover, higher talent acquisition costs, and lower engagement and performance.
  • Focus on the insights the data reveals and identify action plan initiatives to improve HR programs and leader behaviors that impact new hire engagement.
  • Source qualitative data to understand the context behind the results and action plan with greater impact.

Impact and Result

  • Demonstrate the organization both values and leverages feedback from new hires to improve the employee experience.
