From the moment you hire an employee, the onboarding process begins. An effective onboarding strategy, supported by the right software, can help you to improve long-term engagement, reduce employee turnover and build a company culture of productivity and trust.
Your onboarding hub acts as a new starter’s first point of contact with your organisation, giving them the ability to view useful information, such as building layouts, policies, procedures, handbooks and FAQs. Providing the right support gives new starters the opportunity to fit into your company culture quickly, improving your ability to engage and retain top talent.
“We really wanted to empower employees from day one. We wanted them to feel like they were already part of the company and not a new starter. Our onboarding hub gave employees access to current employee feedback, an induction to their benefits and an insight into our company culture. CIPHR has proved to be incredibly valuable and has really helped employees to start their journey with us. ”
