Onboarding programs are important for establishing a new hire’s ability to be productive as well as get along with the team, according to a new TEKsystems’ survey of information technology leaders and workers released.
Sixty-two percent of IT leaders say onboarding programs are extremely important to establishing a new hire’s ability to be productive/add value, and 53 percent also felt it established a level of cohesion within their team.
IT professionals agree, with 49 percent believing onboarding is extremely important to determining one’s ability to be productive/add value, and 45 percent saying onboarding helps determine one’s ability to work well with the team.
Despite their agreement on the importance of onboarding programs, 57 percent of IT leaders say they have a formal, strategic onboarding plan less than 20 percent of the time, while just 18 percent of IT professionals say sufficient attention is given to developing a strong onboarding program.
TEKsystems polled more than 2,100 IT professionals and more than 1,500 IT leaders for its survey. TEKsystems is a division of Allegis Group.
