The Onboarding Experience: Give New Employees a Good Start
  Did you know that your onboarding process can significantly affect employee success? One study found that it can increase retention by 25% and improve performance by 11%. Employees who participate in an onboarding program are 69% more likely to stay with a company for three years, and 15% said that the lack of one contributed to their decision to quit.   At Integrity Staffing Solutions, we onboard thousands of associates and staff members per year.
