Why CEO’s Role in Employee Onboarding is Crucial
As a CEO, attracting and retaining top talent is crucial to the success and growth of your organization. Employee onboarding, the process of introducing new hires to the company and helping them become productive members of the team, is a critical aspect of this process. Investing in effective onboarding can bring numerous benefits to your organization.

One of the primary benefits of effective onboarding is improved retention. When new hires feel welcomed, supported, and connected to the organization, they are more likely to stay with the company in the long term.
This can significantly reduce the cost and disruption of high employee turnover.

How can an Employee Intranet Help in Onboaring?
An intranet can play an important role in new employee onboarding by providing a centralized location for all the information and resources that new employees need. This includes company information, policies and procedures, training resources, communication and collaboration tools, employee directory, news and events, and self-service portals. These resources can help new employees feel more connected to the organization, improve their productivity, and ensure they are aware of company's policies and procedures. This can lead to a smoother and more successful onboarding process and help to retain new employees in the long term
