Are there any onboarding strategies that an employer can implement to minimize the risk of ghosting by a new hire?

Yes. To minimize the risk of ghosting by a new hire, an employer should consider implementing the following onboarding strategies:

  • Actively communicating with all new hires and making sure to respond to any questions or concerns;
  • Maintaining an open door policy and addressing any issues that may arise;
  • Ensuring that all new hires feel part of the team and encouraging them to contribute to the organization;
  • Providing new employees with mentors to introduce and integrate them into the organization and provide support;
  • Asking new hires for feedback and to identify any issues before such issues escalate on an onboarding survey form after an introductory period; and
  • Maintaining a positive and diverse workplace culture where all employees feel respected, valued and engaged.
