Careers have been changing for some time. More and more people have portfolio careers, switching industries, roles and employers frequently to fit in with a more flexible lifestyle and give a better work-life balance.
This means most firms have higher labour turnover and greater recruitment costs.
It also means it becomes necessary to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of recruitment and induction processes – what is often called ‘onboarding’ these days – – so that shorter tenure employees get up to speed quickly.
It can take months to get an employee fully up to speed in a skilled job – every week saved is worth money.
