Human managers face many challenges every day, but none are more intensive than recruiting and training employees. Demand is not satisfied, but the talent pool continues to shrink. Despite the lack of talent, it is more important than ever to find the right employee. But when the right people are found, bigger challenges begin.

The definition of employee participation varies from company to company. Although the process is almost similar, the time frame and tasks make each onboarding program unique.

While some HR managers seem to view the new hire onboarding process as merely a document for newly hired employees, more experienced and engaged team members have a different view of the importance of hiring. 

After spending hours searching, identifying, interviewing, and recruiting the right talent, all your hard work will go to waste and you'll be back on step one when new hires leave on a greener landscape. 

What happens if the employee accepts the offer, confirms the notification period, accepts the start date, but withdraws at the last minute? A more structured employee participation, implemented through a specific employee participation process can prevent this. It actually increases employee engagement, creates a sense of loyalty in new employees and increases employee loyalty.

You consider the entire time period from the time the offer is posted to the time an employee becomes a productive employee for the company as part of the employee participation process.
