You need a 30-60-90 day plan more than ever.

Hiring the right person can be insanely difficult. Not to mention that the hiring process itself can last up to 23.8 days. That means you’ve invested over three weeks before your new hire starts.

With many areas in human resources that can go wrong, how can you go right? And how are other employers getting it right? Specifically, companies such as:

The best way to ape the success of these companies is by nurturing talent. That all starts with great onboarding and a retention strategy from day one. That’s where the 30-60-90 day plan can help you.

In the kitchen, we had lots of processes. They were difficult to forget, and I’d often wake up shouting, “How many nuggets do you want?!”

McDonald’s processes are continually improved and optimized to be smoother and more efficient. I once discovered a technical – yet easy – process that saved me a lot of work. What was it? At the end of the article, I’ll tell you how I used a 5 step process to complete it.

In the meantime, let’s look at how Process Street can help optimize your workflows. To use workflow optimization, you need to know:

Perfect onboarding experience

New hire churn is expensive. Working in HR, you know the cost of having to replace an employee once they hand in their resignation.

A recent survey found that 65% of workers are actively searching for new employment. If you’ve worked in HR for some time, the thought of two-thirds of your employees walking is very worrying. The cost of a new hire found through a recruitment agency can be up to $7500 or more. To start building employee retention early on, and prevent excessive hiring costs, it pays to focus on a perfect onboarding experience.
