Employee Onboarding Survey Template

When new employees join an organization, the first couple of weeks can decide on whether the relationship between employee and company will be successful and whether or not the new employee will be engaged. It is the job of the employer to guarantee a successful employee onboarding in order to use the recruited talent in the most effective way possible. You also don't want to throttle the unique mix of sentiments (curiosity, motivation and initial ambition) a new hire brings into your company. Thus, it is essential to have a well-functioning onboarding process in your organization that guarantees new hires a successful start into the new job position. Conducting surveys with new employees on how they viewed) their onboarding process is extremely important in order to better understand how new people perceive your organization, and how well they are set up for success. It is important to conduct multiple surveys throughout a time period of anywhere between two to six months, depending on the nature and scope of the job position. This survey template provides an initial snapshot and should be conducted after the first six to twelve weeks. It touches upon all areas of employee onboarding and allows you to quickly assess what parts of your onboarding process are going well, and where there is room for improvement. Later on further surveys should be conducted in order to assess the development of the employee and the overall success of the onboarding process.
