Abstract:

This study addressed employee retention by gathering data from young Air Force officers regarding their onboarding experiences. Onboarding has garnered more attention in recent years and is a topic that warrants more exploration in the military community. The onboarding experience was correlated with three key variables job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and job embeddedness. Results of the study indicated that both organizational commitment and job embeddedness were significantly correlated with higher quality onboarding. While the correlation with job satisfaction was not significantly supported, data did show connections worthy of future exploration.
