Executive search firm Maru has launched a unique service to help employers improve retention in new hires.

Inplacement has been designed by Maru founder and expert resourcer Hannah Waddington to address attrition rates in this crucial time. Figures show nearly a fifth (17%) of new starts leave a role in the first month alone.

Inplacement is a new way of onboarding for companies who want to invest in their starters by creating a human-to-human environment and culture of inclusion no matter where they are working from.

Hannah, who started Maru Search & Consultancy in 2020, said: “We have all felt the effects of working remotely – and while there is still huge merit in the remote working model, there has been a lack of human contact for people who are starting new jobs.

“Inplacement is a way of supporting employers of growing businesses who want to invest in their people and enhance their culture.

“It does this by creating a safe and welcoming place for new hires to understand more about who they are in their new job, how to create a support network and develop new skills and understanding.”

Hannah continued: “It is onboarding with a difference. So many companies now use AI and technology to bring their new employees into their world – at Maru we believe that right now the human touch is sorely needed.”

Inplacement is a 14-week structured programme of one-hour sessions for employees to check in on their progress and confidentially discuss any concerns they have about their new role.

Employers receive reports and information about how their new start is doing and are able to understand and address concerns as they arise.
