25% of the workforce has held their job for less than 1 year.
79% of people who quit cite lack of appreciation as the main reason.
As sobering as these statistics are, there is hope for overcoming the harsh realities of attracting and retaining top talent. It’s called purpose, and it’s a magnet for high-achievers. Purpose is what drives people to do great work. Onboarding and inboarding can connect (and reconnect) employees to your company’s purpose early on and keep them connected for the long haul, increasing engagement and productivity and reducing turnover.
But even connections made with onboarding and inboarding won’t stick without ongoing recognition and positive reinforcement from leaders. Their appreciation deepens a team’s sense of purpose and encourages the kind of great work that can change an entire industry.
