You did it. You found a great candidate, successfully recruited them to join your team, and now, their first day is just around the corner.

The hard work, though, isn’t behind you—because you still have to convince them that they’ve made the right choice.

That’s where your onboarding process comes in.

New employees who feel welcomed, who feel like a part of the team, and who get a lot of quality time with their supervisors, are more likely to be loyal, engaged, and productive—all of which spells good things for your company’s bottom line.

So if you want your new hires to stick around for the long haul, you should plan on taking at least 90 days to immerse them in your company culture and help them amass the skills they’ll need to do their job successfully.
