Research shows that the first 3 months are crucial for engaging and retaining new employees and a poor fit with the culture is one of the key factors in new hire failure. To get new people up to speed quickly with your culture and way of doing things will not only increase retention, but also productivity.

How many people are on your team?
What is their average yearly salary?
What is your rate of attrition?
What does it cost to find new talent?
How long does it take to fill a position?
How long does it take to ramp up a new hire?
Value an individual produces?
This is how much your staff turnover costs every year. What if you could reduce that number by half? Providing an effective Onboarding Programme helps lower staff turnover and increase employee engagement. A very sound investment if you ask us.
The Onboarding App helps boost the onboarding experience from the day new staff sign the contract. It is fully customisable and automated, and enables you to track progress of the Onboarding programme on dashboards.
Designed to be fun and simple to use, the app’s role is to enhance learning and promote tangible actions during the first 2-6 weeks. The app is not a substitute for an e-learning platform, but rather a complement.
All the data that comes in can be accessed live on dashboards, to track how well the culture is embedded. The app is run on smart phones or laptops, with no download required. Simply email a link to staff. Read more.
Do you bring new staff together for onboarding days? Do you want to take your participants from Passive Listeners to Active Contributors?
Our “Active Meetings” format combines group discussions, case studies, game boards and tablets to help your employees fully understand your business. By adding short, interactive break out sessions, you can pose vital questions and let the new staff discuss among themselves in small groups. This is called peer-2-peer learning and is especially powerful when people are new and not comfortable to ask questions in plenum.
All the data that comes in can be monitored on a live feed, allowing you to gauge straight away their level of understanding and pick up questions for further clarification. Read more.
The Onboarding Game is a fun and engaging way of introducing the company to new staff. The focus of the game is on understanding the most difficult topics like Vision, Strategy and Culture & Values, through discussion and dilemmas.
Learn about the organization, interact with colleagues, take pictures and compete with fun, informative quizzes. All designed to energize your newcomers, using proven gamification techniques. The game is always tailored to suit your organisation. Read more.
Research shows that the first 3 months are crucial for engaging and retaining new employees. A poor fit with the culture and a lack of understanding of the overall direction of the company are key factors in new hire failure. Many organisations lose too many new starters in the first 3-6 months. On average, the cost to employers of replacing a single employee is more than £30,0000.
Crafting an engaging and structured onboarding programme is one of the best ways to increase retention and engagement. Research suggests that good onboarding can provide:
+58% increased retention after three years
+50% higher productivity for new starters
+20% increase in employee engagement
However, only 12% of employees strongly agree their organisation does a great job of onboarding new employees. Would you be interested in starting a conversation about taking your onboarding to the next level?
