Onboarding and Training: Keys to Sustainable Staffing
Having a strong onboarding and training program is crucial to running a business. A solid onboarding process can improve employee retention and alleviate high turnover. According to research by Glassdoor, great employee onboarding can improve retention by 82% and productivity by over 70%.
Once an employee is hired, it’s important they’re provided the materials to do their job to the best of their ability as well as understand your brand’s story, culture, winemaking and viticulture processes. Adding layers of information in an easily digestible format is extremely helpful in encouraging well-rounded employees.
Education also keeps employees engaged and enthusiastic about their jobs. According to LinkedIn’s 2019 Workforce Learning Report, 94% of employees say that they would stay at a company longer if it simply invested in helping them learn.
