According to Forbes Advisor, it costs an average of $1,400 to onboard a new employee. For smaller companies with fewer than 1,000 employees, the cost is even higher because they have fewer resources for onboarding. Overall, it takes about six months for a company to recoup the cost of a new hire. So how can these enormous costs be reduced?
The most obvious answer is employee retention. Losing fewer workers saves the cost of new ones. Many companies try to solve retention problems the traditional way, by conducting extensive exit interviews. The big advantage of people analytics over this approach is that it is predictive, not reactive. This provides more objective information and allows for proactive measures to be taken for all employees. As a result, the workplace becomes more attractive and resignations can be avoided.
