Sage 100 now offers mobile barcode scanning with Sage Mobility for Barcode. That’s great news for companies who experience high turnover or hire plenty of seasonal workers or temps during peak season. Why? Because Sage 100 for mobile barcode scanning makes onboarding and training a snap.
Why Faster Onboarding Matters
According to the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment, the average time it takes to train a new employee is three months and 65 hours. That’s a lot of time to spend on training, and anything you can do to shorten the training cycle helps you get employees up to speed and working at peak efficiency faster.
The Bureau of Labor currently puts the unemployment rate at 3.7%. That means that if people aren’t happy with their employer, they may feel confident enough to leave and seek employment elsewhere; it’s easier to find a job today than it was a year or two ago.
The faster you can onboard new employees, the more engaged they will be in their work. Engagement prevents employee attrition. According to the McQuaig Institute, the top three reasons employees give for leaving their jobs is a poor relationship with their boss, lack of faith in the company mission, and lack of challenges or continual engagement.
By making it easier for people to learn the job skills they need to succeed, such as scanning barcodes with their mobile scanners, you can reduce the likelihood of employee turnover.
