The job market landscape today is extremely competitive. Hiring managers are struggling to find quality talent to fill the increasing number of positions opening up within their organizations.

In today’s workplace, onboarding is more critical than ever to ensure that employees start their new career on the right foot and that they remain engaged for the duration of their employment.

According to Gallup, 70% of US employees are not engaged in their job. This translates into $550 billion in lost productivity annually. 67% higher absenteeism, 72% fewer referrals, and 35 to 65% higher turnover (to name a few more stats).
So how did we get here?
