Why Recognition of New Hires is So Critical

November 19, 2015 | By Mike Ryan

Starting any new job can be hard. Employees often struggle to make connections, understand their role and develop relationships. Almost one third of all new hires will quit within the first year. About half will leave within the first 18 months.

So why do so many new workers leave so quickly? And what’s the best way to remedy any of the adjustment issues new workers go through?

In this month’s Performance Perspective, Mike Ryan explores:

  • Why recognition of new hires is so critical

  • The importance of establishing connections early

  • Why new employees need to taste success early (and often)
