Your new employees are thrilled to join your team. Will they stay that way?

Recruiting employees costs money and time. You have a significant interest in keeping your new hires engaged and productive. Making sure that your employees have the resources they need in the early weeks and months on the job and that they fit in in with your culture are major factors on assimilation to your environment. And while many companies have added programs to help new employees acclimate, they often struggle to assess the success of those efforts.

When you see what your new hires see, it's a lot easier to address any concerns they have proactively.

At PwC, we understand that successful assimilation into a new organization is a highly complex process that spans across departments and requires coordination of multiple teams. That's why our onboarding surveys take a thorough assessment of the new hire process: the complete experience, from offer acceptance through the first several months of employment. We provide results segmented by demographics and job roles, targeting the most appropriate metrics for your organization. We get the right information to leadership and managers, so they can develop action plans that get results.

We start by knowing what to ask.

A strong new hire program can help you find, keep, and engage top performers.

We develop customized questionnaires to help you see what drives a successful onboarding program. For instance, some companies use multiple surveys to assess attitudes and perceptions throughout the first year, while others seek feedback about their affinity groups or mentorship programs. Our onboarding surveys can also evaluate the quality-of-hire or hiring manager satisfaction, and we can even offer a confidential hotline to support new hires who might be at-risk. With the right information, you can help new employees get productive faster and feel more committed.

A well-administered survey leads to more meaningful results. So we provide access to a library of proven questions, help in designing a survey's format, a web-based reporting interface that lets you create and share detailed, visual reports, and more.

Our Onboarding Surveys are part of a bigger picture.

Our new hire surveys complement other PwC survey programs — such as exit interviews and employee engagement — in tracking the overall quality of hiring and retention in your organization. When you look at the results in a broader context, through our Benchmarking programs, you’ll see how your organization compares to your peers across the country, especially on New Hire Turnover and Quality of Hire measures.
